Biographical Information[edit]

James "Dewey" McDougal struggled in the big leagues but had more success in 1897 with the Cedar Rapids Rabbits, for whom he went 20-10. With an 8.32 ERA in 114 2/3 innings for the St. Louis Browns in 1895, he holds the record for highest ERA by a pitcher with 100-plus innings in a season.

McDougal was born in Aledo, IL, a small town in west-central Illinois. Through 2019, the only other big leaguer born in Aledo has been Peaches Graham, who followed McDougal to the big leagues by a few years. Dewey was also followed to the majors a bit later by fellow Knox College students Bill Essick and Hi West.

He is one of several major leaguers with the last name McDougal, or a similar last name: Sandy McDougal, Gil McDougald, Marshall McDougall, and Mike MacDougal.
