Thanks for being honest! I collect oddball trivia like this. It's getting harder and harder to ask questions that can't be looked up and I knew this one could so your candor is appreciated.

Instead of trying to right his control issues he switched to center field where in 1905 he had a season for the ages leading the league in Hits, Doubles, Triples, RBI, Batting Average, Slugging, and OPS!

Another thing I found when I looked it up, he is second to Ruth in Wins+Hits over a career.

Just back from the store - no answer yet? Is it one guess per? I have another guess from earlier than the Big Train (though he probably didn't have the ABs either).

Either way, it's a probably 19th C pitcher since ABs keep out all the 20th century pitchers...

Whoops. Congrats - great trivia...

Now that it's over, there's a guy named Heckler (sp?) who was a great hitter/pitcher for the Pirates before the turn of the previous century...

Guy Hecker also qualifies as he led his league in k's in 1884 and in batting in (I think) 1886.
