Jim McCormick was one of the top pitchers of the 1800s, whose career WHIP and ERA was superior to the bulk of his enshrined peers.  He won over 250 career games and completed over ninety percent of his starts, but completing games was common among hurlers of the 1800s–if you couldn’t finish what you started, you had no business on the diamond.  McCormick was a top-flight pitcher whose career seems worthy of Hall of Fame induction.  Among his Hall of Fame peers, John Clarkson, Pud Galvin, Tim Keefe, Old Hoss Radbourn and Mickey Welch, only Keefe had a better WHIP while McCormick’s career ERA was far superior to those pitchers who played in his era.

Bedroom-eyed Renee Godfrey was a lesser known actress during the 1940s who possessed the proper assemblage for cheesecake art.  With her Amazonian figure, the dark-haired beauty made for an ideal pin-up model.  In features, Miss Godfrey typically played the “other woman,” or a mysterious female who dealt in underhanded dealings.  She was sharp in Down Missouri Way, a comedy that enabled her to showcase her acting chops.
