Biographical Information[edit]

Although Chummy Gray had only one month in the big leagues, he pitched 70 2/3 innings in that time in 9 games. Six of them were complete games, and his ERA of 3.44 was better than the league average of 3.85. Earlier in the season, he had been in the Western League, where he pitched a no-hitter.

In 1895, he had played on the Toronto Canucks, going 15-27. He was on the roster of the 1900 Kansas City Blues.

Born in Rockland, ME, he died at age 40 in the same place. The only other major league player from Rockland is Harvey Cushman, who broke into the majors three years after Gray, in 1902.

"Chummy" Gray couldn't have made a better showing than he did In the first game. Though he lost the event by a wild pitch before he settled down good strategic pitching was exhibited later on. He has an old head and sends them over the plate for a purpose." - Sporting Life, September 23, 1899
