Pittsburgh Press, June 18, 1914:
If only there was a position he could play that didn’t require him to throw the ball. Dang.
Anyway, Sisler never did report to the Pirates, but that’s because he signed at age 17 and the contract was invalid. As you all know, he signed with the Browns, played first base, hit .400 twice, and set the (since broken) all-time record for hits in a single season.
Oh, and the part about never being able to pitch again? Not true. Sisler pitched 18 times (11 starts) for the ‘15-‘16 Browns, putting up a 2.32 ERA (122 ERA+) in 97 innings.
