Jay

Right-handed pitcher, 1961-1966. Inducted 2008.

Led the league in wins and shutouts and made the All-Star team in 1961.  Started the only game in the 1961 World Series that the Reds won, a complete game four-hitter. In 1962, he and teammate Bob Purkey both garnered at least 20 wins, the first Reds teammates to achieve this feat since Paul Derringer and Bucky Walters.
