William Leer "Beverly" Bayne
Birth: Apr. 18, 1899
Death: May 22, 1981

Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League Baseball as a Pitcher for 9 seasons (1919 to 1924, 1928 to 1930) for the St. Louis Browns, Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox. He had such a wicked curveball that Ty Cobb once pinch-hit a righthanded hitter for himself against him. However, he did not have many other pitches, and spent most his career as a middle reliever, closer and occasional starter in an era that saw most pitchers start and finish their games. His best year, 1921, saw him start 14 games (out of 47 appearences) winning 11 and losing 5. After being a bullpen mainstay for the Browns for 6 years, he was sent into the Minors, where he toiled for 4 years until brought back by the Indians in 1928. He spent 1 year with Cleveland before being sent to the Red Sox, where he played out the remaining two years of his career. His career totals were 31 Wins-32 Losses, 8 Saves, 259 Strikeouts and a 4.84 Career Earned Run Average. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
