Donohue

Right-handed pitcher, 1921-1930. Inducted 1964.

Credited by many with developing the change-up. Workhorse pitcher who led the league, at various times, in the following:  games started, innings pitched, complete games (27 in 1925!), wins, shutouts, and BB/9.  At one point in his career, he won 20 consecutive games against the Philadelphia Phillies.
