Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Born in Cascade, Iowa, he was a right handed pitcher making his debut for the Chicago White Sox on April 14, 1914. For twenty years, he played his career with the Chicago White Sox (1914-33) and appeared in 10 games for the New York Yankees in 1934. In 1914, he led the American League in saves with 4, with earned run average with a 2.48 in 1921, a 2.81 in 1922, in complete games with 32 in 1921, 31 in 1922 and most innings pitched with 352 in 1922. He holds the White Sox franchise record for most games pitched, and held the team records for career wins, starts, complete games and innings until they were later broken by pitcher Ted Lyons.
