Biography:Dick Newsome (December 13, 1909 - December 15, 1965) was a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played his entire career for the Boston Red Sox (1941-43). Newsome batted and threw right handed. He was born in Ahoskie, North Carolina.

A graduated from Wake Forest University, Newsome debuted with Boston in the 1941 season.

In his rookie year, Newsome won 19 games (3rd in the American League) and compiled 10 shutouts, leading a Red Sox pitching rotation that included Charlie Wagner, Mickey Harris, Joe Dobson and Lefty Grove. He was considered for the MVP Award, ending 9th in the ballot.

But Newsome slumped badly the next two years, winning only eight games in each of them. After the 1943 season, he served in the Army during the World War II, and then returned to his farm.

In a three-season career, Newsome posted a 35-33 record with 138 strikeouts and a 4.50 ERA in 526.0 innings pitched.

Newsome died in Ahoskie, North Carolina, just two days after his 56th birthday.
