Major League Baseball Player. He set both major-league pitching and pinch-hitting records over a 13-year career that began with three games for the New York Giants in 1923. He pitched briefly for the Boston Braves the following year, then went to Cincinnati, where he enjoyed most of his success. The right-hander pitched a modern-day record of 250 1/3 consecutive innings without being relieved from Aug. 13, 1931-July 15, 1932. That's 27 consecutive complete games, also a record. He led the National League in complete games with 28 in 1929, 24 in 1931 and 28 in 1932. He was 18-11 and 19-12 for weak Reds teams in 1927 and 1929, respectively. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates with Wally Roettger for Adam Comorosky and Tony Piet on Nov. 17, 1933. His lifetime pitching ledger was 157-135, 3.72 earned run average, 2,542 innings pitched and 204 complete games in 301 starts. Meanwhile, he batted from the left side and compiled 114 pinch hits, a record since broken by Smoky Burgess and others. He batted .281 lifetime with 404 hits. He is a member of the Reds' Hall of Fame. (bio by: Ron Coons)
