Active from 1951-1955 • Inducted in 1985
Hyde was a four-year baseball letterman, one of the best lefthanders ever to pitch for L&C. During his best season in his junior year, he posted an 8-3 record on a team that finished 9-21, accounting for all seven Northwest Conference wins that year, including a doubleheader sweep against Pacific to end the season in which he went the distance in both games. As a junior, he had an ERA of 1.12 in 92 innings, gave up only 22 runs, and struck out 113 batters. He was selected to play on the U.S. team in the 1954 Pan American Games in Mexico City.
Ray Hyde now lives in his childhood home in Portland, Ore. with his wife, Jutta. He has two step-children and one grand step-child. He taught 30 years in Munich, Germany before retiring. Hyde enjoys photography and scuba diving. In 1959 he was part of a shark test in Panama to determine what and when sharks would attack. He was also elected as the most effective pitcher on the U.S. Pan-American baseball team.
