Biographical Information[edit]

After his baseball career, Charlie Pechous was a practicing physician for more than 50 years.

On August 6, 1922, Pechous turned an unassisted triple play while playing for the Columbus Senators of the American Association.

He began his professional career in 1915 as one of three winners of a contest sponsored by the Chicago Tribune to identify the best amateur players in Chicago, IL and offer them a chance to play with one of the city's three major league teams. An outstanding fielder, although not much of a hitter, he was picked by the Chicago Cubs, but did not play for them, and signed with the Chicago Whales of the Federal League later in the 1915 season.
