Biographical Information[edit]

Clay Fauver had a distinguished career, of which only a little involved baseball. His major league career consisted of one game, which he won without giving up any earned runs. He also played a year in the minors.

The Fauver name was a big one at Oberlin College. Clay, born in a town near Oberlin, moved to the town of Oberlin, OH when he was young. His father became mayor of Oberlin. Clay was a football and baseball star at Oberlin College, and his brother Louis was on the football team with him. His brothers Edward and Edgar were football coaches at Oberlin after Clay had left (both Edward and Edgar later became quite prominent as college athletics administrators). Clay himself was football coach for the Oberlin team one year.

He also served as football coach one year at Miami University and was baseball coach at Case Western Reserve University (at Western Reserve before it merged with Case).

He became a prominent New York attorney, but stayed active with Oberlin College in various capacities.

"When in August 1933 Clayton K. Fauver came to Oberlin to become president of the Oberlin Savings Bank Company it was a return of a distinguished son of Oberlin to the town of his boyhood." - from an article in the Oberlin News Tribune, found here; as with some other articles about Clay Fauver's distinguished career, it doesn't even mention his baseball career
