The greatest pitcher of the 1st Quarter of the 1900's was raised in Factoryville and graduated from Keystone [Academy, now College]. His reputation as a gentleman rivaled his fame as a pitcher.
He joined the New York Giants in 1900. In 1901, he pitched a no-hitter against St. Louis. He pitched another against Chicago in 1905.
His 16 strikeouts in a single game in 1904 and his 1903 season total of 267 str[i]keout stood for a long time as records.
In the 1905 World Series against the Philadelphia Athletics, he pitched three games and won all three by complete shutouts. The Giants won the series 4-1.
He won at least 20 games in each of 13 seasons, including 3 straight seasons of more than 30 Wins. In 1908 he won an unprecedented 37 games.
He was one of the first 5 players to be inducted into the Baseball [H]all of Fame (along with Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Walter Johnson).
