    Elden Auker was a major league pitcher from 1933 to 1942. After a football injury while playing at Kansas State University, he developed his signature sidearm pitching motion. He used the whip like motion as a rookie in 1933 to strike out Babe Ruth. Auker turned in a solid career for three clubs. He had double digits in wins in eight of his ten seasons. In 1935, he led the league in winning percentage. Auker also pitched in both the 1934 and 1935 World Series for the Detroit Tigers. JSA Auction LOA.
