George August "Hooks" Dauss (September 22, 1889 – July 27, 1963) was a Major League pitcher who played his entire career with the Detroit Tigers. Nicknamed 'Hooks' or 'Hookey' because of his hard-to-hit curveball. During his playing career from 1912 to 1926, he won more games than any other pitcher in Detroit Tigers history.
