Toledo News-Bee, August 15, 1912:
That was, for all intents and purposes, the end of Lefty Russell’s pitching career.
Russell won 24 games in 1910 as a teenager in the Eastern League, becoming the hottest commodity in the minors and eventually being sold to Philadelphia for $12,000, the largest sum that had ever been paid for a ballplayer. He scragged his arm early in Spring Training 1911, gave up 50 runs in 49 innings over 1911-12, and that was that.
Russell bounced around the minors as a first baseman/outfielder from 1913-1917, but never made it back to the big leagues.
