Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Born George Edward Waddell in Bradford, Pennsylvania, he made his debut as a left hand pitcher for the Louisville Colonels on September 8, 1897. Regarded as one of the best pitchers of all time, his 1904 single-season strikeout record of 349 for an American League lefty has stood for generations. For thirteen seasons, he played for the Louisville Colonels, 1897, Pittsburgh Pirates, 1900 to 1901, Chicago Orphans, 1901 and Philadelphia Athletics, 1902 to 1907. He ended his career with 193 wins, 143 loss, 50 shutouts, 5 saves, 2316 strikeouts and a 2.16 earned run average. In 1946, he was inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame by the Old Timers Committee. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
