Charles G. "Charlie" Buffinton
Birth: Jan. 14, 1861
Death: Sep. 23, 1907

Major League Baseball Player. Played in the Major Leagues as a right-handed pitcher for 11 seasons (1882 to 1892), winning over 20 games in 7 of them. Began with the National League's Boston Red Stockings (which would eventually become the Braves), winning an astounding 48 games for them in 1884 (and striking out 417 batters). He would have lead the league that year if Charlie Radbourn had not won a still-standing record 60 wins. On September 2, 1884, in a game against the Cleveland Spiders, he struck out 17 hitters in nine innings, which 130 years later is still the record for the Boston-Milwaukee-Atlanta franchise. Traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1887, he would win over 20 games for them in each of his three seasons with them (21, 28, and 28 respectively). In 1890 he jumped to the Philadelphia Quakers of the short-lived Players League, winning 19 and losing 15 while serving as their player-manager. In 1891 and 1892 he again shifted leagues, playing first for Boston of the American Association League, then for the National League's Baltimore Orioles before leaving the Majors. His career totals were 233 wins-152 losses, 30 shutouts, 1700 strikeouts and a 2.96 career ERA. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
