Hall of Fame Negro Leagues Baseball Player. Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, he didn't begin his Negro leagues career until age 30, joining the Kansas City Monarchs as a pitcher in 1920, after spending nearly a decade playing on US Army teams. For seventeen seasons with the Kansas City Monarchs (1920-38), he compiled a record of 116 wins, 50 loss, 132 complete games, 855 strikeouts and a 2.59 earned run average. He also played the outfield when he wasn't pitching and was a good hitter. In 1922, he led the Negro National League with 16 home runs and had a .338 career batting average. In addition, he was also manager of the Kansas City Monarchs for ten seasons, (1926-34, 1936). He died at age 73 in Kansas City, Missouri and was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of fame in 1998. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
