Biographical Information[edit]

Jim Haislip went 20-6 for the Denison Blue Sox and then came up to the 1913 Phillies for one game, not too long after his 22nd birthday. He was the last of four pitchers facing the 1913 Cardinals that day, with the young Eppa Rixey as the third of the four.

Haislip spent two more seasons in the minors, each time playing part of the season with Denison. In 1914, he was 9-5 during his half season with the Dallas Giants, a team which overall went 67-83.

Jim was born in Farmersville, TX in 1891, as was his contemporary Tex McDonald, who was also in the majors in 1913. Jim attended Texas Christian University, where his time overlapped with that of Claude Cooper and Ona Dodd.

After baseball, he operated a "Dallas transit company" [1].
