Year Inducted: 1971

Walter F. Jusczyk '41 ranks as one of Brown's finest modern-day hurlers. In his senior season he struck out 106 men in 102 innings and allowed only eight earned runs to post a scintillating .784 ERA. Using a live fast ball, together with a knuckler for his "out" pitch, Captain Jusczyk had a career record of 18-16, striking out 239 men in 296 1/3 innings. The Warwick, RI, native and Providence Journal Honor Roll Boy is the only Brown pitcher to defeat Providence College four times running. Jusczyk defeated Harvard five times in six meetings and, in 1940, he administered the only defeat of the season to Holy Cross. Signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers, Jusczyk's career was disrupted by World War II.
