    Today's Tiger birthdays

    Today's Tiger birthdays (5/7): Allan Travers (126, 1 game in 1912, died 1968). Allan Travers pitched in 1 game for the 1912 Tigers, taking the mound on May 18 while the regular Tigers roster was on strike protesting the suspension of Ty Cobb. He pitched the entire game, surrendering 26 hits and 24 runs, although owing to the fact that his defense was comprised entirely of other non-professional “baseball players”, only 14 of the runs were earned – still a total high enough to set a still-standing major league record for most earned runs given up in a single game. His career stats include a record of 0-1, an ERA of 15.75, 50 batters faced, and, incredibly, one strikeout. Travers volunteered to pitch upon learning that the pitcher would be paid $30, as compared to the $25 offered to position players. Later in his life, Travers became a Catholic priest, making him the only ordained priest in MLB history. Needless to say, Travers did not appear in the majors with any other team.
