Richard "Stub" Brown pitched three seasons in the majors. According to the Sporting Life, August 19, 1893 issue, he was a local (to Baltimore) amateur and, in his debut, did "remarkably well". He also played several seasons in the minors. Stub went 4-0 for the champion 1894 Orioles, and while his 4.89 ERA may seem high, it was a lively ball era, and the team ERA was exactly 5.00. In general, Stub won games - to the extent recorded, Stub won over 2/3 of his minor league decisions as well.
The SABR biography of Al Burris states that he and Stub were teammates with the Cambridge club in the Eastern Shore League in 1904. Stub had been one of the opposing pitchers ten years earlier when Al made his sole major league appearance.
