We’ll move to pitching categories in the record book feature, starting with wins.  Don’t worry we’ll go back to batting for the average/on-base/slugging categories, I just require a little more time to figue them out. Remember we’re using the “Lincoln Rule” which limits the record book to players born in Kentucky.

Career Wins Leaders

  1. Gus Weyhing — 1887-1901 — 264
  2. Jim Bunning — 1955-1971 — 224
  3. Paul Derringer — 1931-1945 — 223
  4. Carl Mays — 1915-1929 — 207
  5. Jesse Tannehill — 1894-1911 — 197

Single-Season Wins Leaders

  1. Gus Weyhing — 1892 — 32
  2. Gus Weyhing — 1891 — 31
