Major League Baseball Player. He played Major League baseball as a pitcher for nineteen seasons (1906 to 1907, 1909 to 1916, and 1918 to 1926) with the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates. He pitched three complete-game victories (including a shutout in game 7) in the 1909 World Series over the Detroit Tigers as a rookie. In that series, American League batting champ, Ty Cobb, went one-for-eleven against Adams (.090). He is still credited as the only rookie to win three games in a single World Series, and is one of only two rookies to start and win a World series Game 7 (a feat matched by John Lackey of the Anaheim Angels in 2002). He retired after a 17-year career. In his sixties during World War II, Adams covered the war in the Pacific as a foreign correspondent, and later covered the Korean War while in his seventies. (bio by: Kent Kooi)
