Today, on the 121st anniversary of his death, we’d like to offer a tip ‘o the cap to one of the greatest pitchers the game will ever see, and the namesake for this very website.
This dapper gent not only holds the unbreakable major league record for wins in a season with 59 in 1884 (and is also tied for 5th with 48 wins in 1883), but he also taught endless ensuing generations the art of donning the competitive mustache, as well as being the first known human daring enough to flip the bird at the camera.
Greetings everyone, and thanks for stopping by the site! You'll find a wide range of content here - bizarre tales of baseball's yesteryear, short fiction, feature stories, opinions & theories on current baseball news, and tales of my personal experiences both playing and watching the game.
