Howard Ehmke Newsbeat
Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Pittsburgh Press, June 3, 1914:
I love stumbling across early newspaper accounts of players who would eventually become historically significant.
I’m sure you know the story, but in case you don’t…Ehmke threw only 12.2 innings between July 27, 1929 and the end of the season. Connie Mack had a different assignment for him: Scout the Cubs in preparation for a potential World Series matchup. Mack stunned everybody, sent Ehmke to the mound for game one of the ‘29 World Series, and the pitcher struck out 13 batters in a complete game win.
Ehmke appeared in three games the next season, allowed 22 hits in 10 innings, and his career was over.
166 wins, a World Series ring, and a legendary pitching performance say it was a pretty good career.
