With the 139th pick in the draft, the Houston Astros are proud to select LHP Hal Newhouser.

3.06 ERA
1,796 Ks
33 Shutouts
7x All Star
2x MVP
World Series Champion

You don't hear Newhouser's name in baseball lore anymore. Alot of Tigers fans don't even know who he is; but he was perhaps the most dominant player (and the undisputed top pitcher) of the World War II era. With a lively mid 90's fastball and a great changeup and curveball, Newhouser made opposing teams look absoutely foolish, and put up perhaps the greatest two year stretch of any pitcher in history in 1944-45. He will anchor the middle of the Astros' rotation.
