Milwaukee Journal, October 2, 1912:
Nah, the friend was right, it was probably just an excuse.
Works made eight appearances for the Reds as a 24-25 year old in 1912-13 with an overall ERA+ of 58, and that includes a complete game one-hitter. He signed with St. Louis in the Federal League in 1914, didn’t make the team, and got lit up in the minors to the tune of 132 baserunners in 70.2 IP. His last recorded innings in organized ball came at age 28 in 1916, when he allowed 24 baserunners in 11 innings for the Mobile Sea Gulls.
Works died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1941, apparently in a double suicide with his wife.
