Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Lynch, who played seven games as an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs in 1902, is credited as possibly being the inventor of the forkball in John Thorn and John Holway's The Pitcher.

Lynch spent many years playing for Tacoma in several leagues, starting as early as 1901. While mostly an outfielder, he also played third base and in 1904-1905 pitched for them some. He managed Tacoma and other teams between 1906-1914.

He is not to be confused with another Mike Lynch. Both have the middle name Joseph.
