Chicago White Sox pitcher Ed Walsh…
- Holds the all-time records for lowest career ERA and FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching, designed to determine how good pitchers are at preventing balls from getting in play)
- Holds the AL and post-1900 MLB records for most innings pitched in a season (464 in 1908). That’s a lot of innings.
- Won the 1906 World Series against the Cubs.
- Had a Sandy Koufax-style trajectory of burning out his arm when still fairly young (all those innings might have something to do with it)
- Was elected to the Baseball Hall Of Fame.
- Had one of the creepiest smiles of any baseball player.
