Jerome "Dizzy" Dean was one of the more colorful characters in St. Louis Cardinals history. He played in the 1930's era of the "Gas House Gang". His brother, Paul, was also a pitcher for the Cardinals, and before Paul's rookie season began in 1934, Dizzy bragged that he and his brother would win 45 games that year for the Cardinals. Dizzy won 30, Paul won 19, and each brother won two games apiece in the 1934 World Series. Dizzy was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1953.
