Biographical Information[edit]

Marv Gudat holds the post-1900 major league record for most amount of innings pitched in a season without striking a batter out. He pitched 26 2/3 innings in 1929, walking four batters and striking out none. In spite of that, his ERA (in a lively ball environment) was a good 3.38. When he came back to the majors in 1932, he was almost exclusively a pinch-hitter and position player, pitching only one inning.

In the minors, he played 18 seasons, more as an outfielder than as a pitcher, but primarily as a pitcher until 1931. He was in the Pacific Coast League from 1933-45.

He was the first player from UCLA to come to the big leagues.
