Although it is 18 years since
he laid aßide the bat to delve in
mateiia medica and wield the
scalpel, Dr. Baldwin has never
lost interest in baseball.
Born in PltUhrug, Oct. 29,
18GG, Baldwin began his baseball
career with Duluth in 1886, when
he proved himself a great field
ing pitcher by accumulating at
average of .972. In 1887 he went
to the Chicago club, pitching 37
games and being ranked eleventh |
in the league. He finished in the
same position In 1888.
In 188» Baldwin was with the
Columbus, 0., olub In the Ameri
can association, but he jumped
to the Chicago team of the Play
ers' league in 1890, and was the
second best pitcher with that ag
gregation, his pitching average be
After the Brotherhood expired,
Baldwin joined the Pittsburg club
and played in his native city the
seasons of 1891, '92 and part of
'93, finishing the latter season
with the New York club.
In 1894 Baldwin played his last
inning, to Htarl upon tlio career
far more brilliant and certainly
more useful, in which he is doing
so much good for humanity.
A. C. Anson, in the opinion of
the Pittsburg surgeon, is the
greatest ball player that ever
lived. Fans today cannot see
"Anse" In the same light with
Cobb, Speaker, Lajoie and Wag
ner, perhaps, but to Dr. Baldwin
the old leader was the greatest of
managers and hitters.
Remember that Anson, in his
23 years in the game with the
Chicago team, batted .300 or bet
ter 21 times, and twice his aver
age was .400 or better. For five
years, and as late as 1889, Anson
led all first basemen in fielding.
"Old Hoss" Radbourne is Dr.
Baldwin's Idea of the greatest
pitcher, and as second choice he
chooses his namesake, "Lady"
