Frederick Charles Hutchinson (August 12, 1919 – November 12, 1964) was an American professional baseball player, a Major League pitcher for the Detroit Tigers. He also was a manager for three Major League teams.
Stricken with fatal lung cancer at the height 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 B. Hutchinson created the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as a division of the Pacific Northwest Research Foundation, in the Hutchinsons' native city of Seattle, Washington. The "Fred Hutch", which became independent in 1975, is now one of the best-known facilities of its kind in the world.
