Ed Walsh Newsbeat

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-14-2016

Milwaukee Journal, June 14, 1916:

Ed Walsh came back at Comiskey park yesterday to say farewell to the game, of which he was one of the most brilliant ornaments. The iron man of former seasons lasted less than three tinnings, and although he tried to look fate squarely in the face when he walked from the box to give way to Reb Russell, it was noticed that his strong right hand made a motion as if to brush away a tear.

It was Walsh’s final start as a White Sock. He made a relief appearance in July 1916 and made a handful of starts with the 1917 Braves, but his career was essentially over at this point. To this day, Walsh is the all-time MLB leader in career ERA (1.82) and career FIP (2.02). He’s tenth all-time with a 145 ERA+.
