Mel Parnell (b. 1922) played in the majors from 1947 to 1956, all for the Red Sox. For 5 of those seasons, he was a pretty darn good pitcher. He led the league in wins in 1949 with 25 and had 21 wins in 1953. He had a career record of 123-75, 732 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.50. Not a bad line, for sure.
