--Ed Summers--

(1908-1912)

(click on name for statistics)

Summers went 24-12 as a rookie with the pennant-winning Tigers in 1908. That September 25, he hurled two complete-game victories over the A's. He had 19 wins in 1909, but his best-pitched game was not one of them; on July 16, he hurled 18 innings to a scoreless tie against Washington, allowing seven hits and one walk. He lost all four of his World Series assignments in 1908-09. He was a notoriously poor hitter, but both of his ML home runs came in a September 17, 1910 game against the Athletics. Rheumatism hampered his pitching, and he faded to the minors in 1912.

Bert, have you ever thought about putting these all together on their own website. Maybe a list of names that you could click on and they would have their own page. I could help, I am sure MWG and the guys at TigersCentral.com could help as well. I have plenty of hosting space available and the www.creativename.com is only about $10 for a year. Since you already have a ton of these made up, I bet it would take very little effort at this point.

You have already done the hard work by doing the research and putting them together in a beautiful format.

These threads put you over the top for the MVP voting.

PM me and we can discuss it some more.

I agree, they are done beautifully, and should be published for the baseball world to see (just don't stop putting them here as well--they are a fun read) If I were to make a suggestion it would be to get rid of the "thanks for clicking on an ad" thing. That tends to rub my fur the wrong way. :cheeky:

That's just my way of thanking this site for giving me a forum to be such a shameless exhibitionist. It is a good idea to click on a few now and again, but maybe we don't need to be reminded every day. It is a free site for a reason and ad revenue is the reason.

I'm more of a reader than a poster here these days, and Bert, these posts of yours are the best reads. And the photos are great. Thanks a lot.

I know times have changed, but it still amazes me when I hear stories of Ps throwing two complete games in one day.
