Fred HutchinsonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Hutchinson (5/3/2007)Frederick Charles Hutchinson (August 12, 1919 _ November 12, 1964) was an American pitcher and manager in Major League Baseball. Stricken with fatal lung cancer at the zenith of his managerial career as leader of the pennant-contending Cincinnati Reds, he was commemorated one year after his death when his brother, Dr. William Hutchinson, created the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as a division of the Pacific Northwest Research Foundation, in the Hutchinsonsミ native city of Seattle, Washington. The FHCRC, which became independent in 1972, is now one of the best-known facilities of its kind in the world.
