Inscription.  Jay and Paul Dean, born in Arkansas, became the most famous brother duo in baseball history. As pitchers for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1934, they won a combined 49 games to lead the Cards to victory in the World Series. From 1932-1937, the colorful and outspoken "Dizzy" was the NL's greatest pitcher. Both often came to Hot Springs to coach at the town's nationally known baseball school.
