Biographical Information[edit]

Boardwalk Brown was a successful pitcher for a few years with the Philadelphia Athletics at the time of the $100,000 infield. He was 17-11 with three shutouts and a 2.94 ERA in 1913, a year in which the A's won the World Series. On July 12th, in a game against the Detroit Tigers, he walked 15 men - but still won the game, 16-9. No other pitcher has ever walked that many batters in a win since at least 1900.

In five seasons, Boardwalk made 133 appearances with the A's and New York Yankees. His 1914 baseball card can be found here: [1]
