  • Notes 
    • Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as a pitcher for 6 seasons (1905 to 1908, 1910 to 1911) with the Boston Braves, Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox.

      He was known as "Young Cy" or "Little Cy" after the Red Sox's Cy Young. In 1905, his rookie season, he won 20 games, which would have been a remarkable feat if he hadn't also lost 21 that season. That year he set rookie records with 41 complete games and 378 innings pitched. In 1906 led the American League in complete games (37) and innings pitched (358) for the second year in a row. He also pitched a one-hitter against the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 12.

      Even though He lost 23 games in 1907, Pittsburgh expressed interest in acquiring him. In June 1908 Boston traded him to the Pirates for two pitchers. He returned to the minors after Pittsburgh but came back to the White Sox for the 1910 and 1911 seasons. His career totals were 63 Wins-95 Losses, 209 Games Pitched, 120 Complete Games, 21 Shut Outs, 560 Strike Outs and a 3.11 career Earned Run Average.
