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