This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Sports & Entertainment – Walter Johnson. He was one of five of the original inductees in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.
Walter Perry Johnson was a Hall-of-Fame pitcher for the Washington Senators during the early 20th century. Despite playing on a losing franchise "The Big Train's" pitching exploits are largely unmatched.
He ranks 2nd on the all-time list in wins with 417, his 3,509 career strikeouts stood as the standard before Nolan Ryan, broke it. His 110 career shutouts still appear to be an unreachable mark.
Twice Johnson was crowned MVP, 11 times his ERA bowed under 2 runs a game, 12 times he led the league in strikeouts, and for 10 straight seasons he collected at least 20 wins despite the uniform he was wearing. In 1924, he brought Washington its only championship after coming on for 4 scoreless innings in relief in Game 7. His skill and his character was so admired that he even won the respect of Ty Cobb, who wrote him a reference on his running for Congress in MD in 1940.

Minor League Career
Season #1, 1910
