Warren Spahn’s 1961 campaign is the stuff of legends, with the 40-year old hurler leading the National League in wins, with 21, for the fifth straight season. Spahn tossed an incredible 21 complete games, with four shutouts and a 3.02 ERA, and a 1.142 WHIP, leading the Senior Circuit in all four of those significant statistical categories. Spahn’s 300th of his 363 career wins came on August 11th, 1961, as Spahn threw a one-run, complete game in a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs in a stretch of 10-consecutive winning decisions.
