Teammate Ted Radcliffe called Negro Leaguer Ted Trent "one of the best curveball
pitchers that ever lived." Trent was the righthanded ace of the St. Louis Stars teams
that won three pennants in the late 1920s, and of the Chicago American Giants in
the 1930s. His best recorded season was 1928, when he led the St. Louis staff in
virtually every pitching category and topped the league with a 17-4 mark. Available
information gives him a 64-33 career record. He pitched in four consecutive East-West
all-star games from 1934 to 1937, starting the '34 and '37 contests for the West.
