On October 3, 1937 Johnny Allen’s bid for a perfect season is spoiled when Hank Greenberg drives in the only run of the game in the first inning, and Jake Wade throws a one-hitter against the Indians in the 1-0 loss to Detroit on the last day of the season at Navin Field. The 32 year-old right-hander from North Carolina will finish the season 15-1, with his .938 won-loss percentage the best in the major leagues. The 26 year-old Tiger first baseman finishes the season with 183 RBIs, just one shy of Lou Gehrig’s 1931 American League record.
