Jonathan Thompson Walton Zachary (May 7, 1896 Graham, North Carolina - January 24, 1969 Burlington, North Carolina) was a pitcher who had a 19-year career that lasted from 1918 to 1936. He played for the Philadelphia A's, Washington Senators, St. Louis Browns, New York Yankees of the American League and the Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies of the National League.

Zachary is well known for giving up Babe Ruth's record-setting 60th home run in 1927. Then the next year, pitching for Ruth's team--the New York Yankees--he won the third game of the World Series, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals.

Zachary went 12-0 for the 1929 Yankees, which is still the Major League record for most pitching wins without a loss in one season.
