Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball for eight seasons (1902 to 1909) as a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Despite his relatively short career, he had stellar winning seasons in five of his seven full seasons. Coming up with the Cubs in 1902, he was the recipient of the famed "Tinker to Evers to Chance" double play combo's first double play in a September 15th game. After going 9 Wins and 9 Losses that year, he won over 10 ten games and loss less than 10 games in the next five consecutive years. While his 1903 record of 11 Wins and 9 Losses were good (plus he led the NL in saves with 3), it was his worst of the five seasons. The totals over the next few season were 19-9 (1904), 13-5 (1905), 17-6 (1906) and 18-7 (1907). Additionally, his ERA was never over 3.00 during the entire period. In 1907 he achieved an incredible 1.17 Earned Run Average for the year, which would have been good enough for the NL lead if not topped by Cubs' teammate Jack Pfeister's even more incredible 1.15 ERA. Despite his great pitching he did not appear in any of the Cubs' 3 World Series appearances during his tenure. Injuries limited his playing time in his last two seasons, and he retired from baseball after two appearences in 1909. His career totals were 91 Wins-55 Losses, 179 Games Pitched, 6 Saves, 535 Strikeouts and a career 2.42 ERA. He served as baseball coach at University of Michigan for many years, succeeding Branch Rickey in the job. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
