1911 Grover Cleveland Alexander About to be Great

1911 Grover Cleveland Alexander About to be Great

Even the Greek version of Alexander the Great had to get started somewhere, which turned out to be Persia, but the baseball Alexander the Great picked Philadelphia. The B&W photo (7x7.87") shows the future Hall of Famer, with lots of boyish freckles, although he's not all that young at 24. How's this for a rookie season? With a mediocre Philadelphia club, and playing at bandbox Baker Bowl, Alexander started 37 games and finished 31 of them, pitching 367 innings. But "Pete" didn't just pitch a lot, he pitched superbly, going 28-13 with a 2.57 ERA. They didn't have a "Rookie of the Year" award in 1911 or a Cy Young Award, but if they did, Grover Cleveland Alexander had a good shot for both. Photo not in the best of condition. Type I.
