Major League Baseball Player. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound right-hander was a three-time 20-game winner with the Cincinnati Reds. The product of Texas Christian University joined the Reds in 1921 and was soon a star pitcher. He was 18-9 in 1922 with a 3.12 earned run average for 242 innings and 18 complete games in 30 starts. The following year he went 21-15 with a 3.38 ERA for 274 innings and 19 complete games in 36 starts. He was 16-9 and a 3.60 ERA in 1924 and led the league with 27 complete games and 38 starts while going 21-14 with a 3.08 ERA in 1925. Donohue logged 301 innings that year and was one behind Dazzy Vance in victories. He tied Flint Rhem, Lee Meadows and Ray Kremer for most wins with 20 in 1926 and led the National League with 38 starts, 285 innings pitched and five shutouts. He was traded with outfielder Ethan Allen on May 27, 1930 to the New York Giants for infielder Pat Crawford. He was with the Giants and Cleveland Indians in 1931 and the Boston Red Sox in 1932. He finished his 12-year career with a 134-118 record, a 3.87 ERA, 137 complete games in 270 starts and 16 shutouts. He was a good hitting pitcher, batting .246 with six homers. On May 23, 1925, he had four singles and a homer against the Philadelphia Phillies, a team he once beat 20 consecutive times. He is a member of the Reds' Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 1964. (bio by: Ron Coons)
