    Spec Shea, nicknamed the "Naugatuck Nugget", went 14-5 as a rookie in 1947 and would have won the AL Rookie of the Year award if one had been given (at that point only one was given for both leagues, and Jackie Robinson won it, but Spec was the top vote-getter in the AL). He later acted as a technical advisor on the movie The Natural, showing Bob Redford how to look like a ballplayer.
