Anthony John "Tony" Mullane
Birth: Jan. 30, 1859
Death: Apr. 25, 1944

Major League Baseball Player. Born in County Cock, Ireland, he was a left-handed and right-handed pitcher nicknamed ‘The Count' making his debut for the Detroit Wolverines on August 27, 1881, with a 9-1 win. For thirteen seasons, he played with the Detroit Wolverines (1881), Louisville Eclipse (1882), St. Louis Browns (1883), Toledo Blue Stockings (1884), Cincinnati Reds (1886-93), Baltimore Orioles (1893-94) and Cleveland Spiders (1894). He was the first pitcher to throw left-handed and right-handed in the same game and pitched a no-hitter in 1882. He led the American Association in shutouts (1884, 1887), in saves (1883, 1888, 1889) and National League in saves (1893, 1894). He concluded his career with a record of 284 wins, 220 loss, 1803 strikeouts, 468 complete games, 30 shutouts, 15 saves and a 3.05 earned run average. He died at the age of 85 in Chicago, Illinois and was posthumously inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 2010. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

It is so sad that no one has erected a memorial to you. Thank you for all you did to baseball. I would gladly donate to a fund to erect a grave marker
