David Luther Foutz
Birth: Sep. 7, 1856
Carroll County
Maryland, USA
Death: Mar. 5, 1897
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

Major League Baseball Player/Manager: Dave Foutz spent 13 seasons in the Majors as a pitcher/infielder/outfielder, all the while suffering from an asthmatic condition. His first 6 seasons were spent in the American Association with the St. Louis Browns, were he became a star pitcher. To obtain his services, the St. Louis club bought the entire Bay City Michigan team that Foutz was then under contract with. He did not disappoint in St. Louis, as he won 114 games over a 4 year span from 1884-1887, with a career high of 41 in 1886. Always the versatile player, after his sale to Brooklyn in 1888, he began playing other positions more, most notably first base. A son of the Monumental City, he always kept Baltimore near and dear to him, residing there in the off-seasons. Nicknamed "Scissors" due to his skinny frame, he was always a fan favorite. From 1893-1896 he managed the "Brooklyns," as they were sometimes known, and wound up with a lifetime 264-257 record. For his career, overall, he pitched to a lifetime 146-66 mark and as a batter notched a .278 lifetime average with 749 RBI. He died at his home in Waverly, Maryland from an Asthma attack at the age of 40 in 1897. His funeral was a sad and somber affair that was attended by former players and teammates and included executives from the National League and the Brooklyn and St. Louis clubs.  (bio by: Frank Russo)
