Tex Hughson

Biography:Tex Hughson (February 9, 1916 - August 6, 1993), was a Major League Baseball starting pitcher who played his entire career in the American League with the Boston Red Sox (1941-44, 1946-49). He batted and threw right-handed.

A native of Buda, Texas, Hughson assisted University of Texas at Austin. He was a successful and competitive pitcher in major league who wasn't not averse to throwing close to batters, changing speeds by mixing in a hard fastball and an overhand curveball. At the height of his career, injuries in his arm and shoulder threatened permanent disability and hastened his retirement.

Hughson enjoyed his best season in 1942, posting a 22-6 record with a 2.59 ERA, and also leading the league in victories, strikeouts (113), complete games (22), innings pitched (281.0) and batters faced (1150). In 1943 he won 12 games with 114 strikeouts, a 2.64 ERA, and again led the league in complete games (20). He had a 18-5 mark in 1944, topping the league in winning percentage (.783) and WHIP (9.43), and also reached a career-best ERA of 2.26.

After serving in the military for one year, Hughson won 20 games in 1946, led the league in walks per nine innings (1.65), set a career high in strikeouts with 179, and completed 30 of 35 starts. In 1947 Hughson won 12 games, and finished his career at 33 years old after two seasons as a reliever.

In an eight-year career, Hughson posted a 96-54 record with 693 strikeouts and a 2.94 ERA in 1375.2 innings. His control was so good, that he recorded an effective 1.86 strikeout-to-walk ratio (693-to-372). Beside this, he was selected a three-time All-Star (1942-44).

Tex Hughson died in San Marcos, Texas, at age of 77. He was enshrined in the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in November 2002.
