Ellis Kinder

Biography:Ellis Kinder (July 26, 1914 - October 16, 1968), also nicknamed "Old Folks", was a Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher who played for the St. Louis Browns (1946-1947), Boston Red Sox (1948-55), St. Louis Cardinals (1956) and Chicago White Sox (1956-57). He was born in Atkins, Arkansas.

Despite making his MLB debut as a 31 year old rookie, Kinder had a reputable career. He is one of few pitchers in baseball history who won or saved a combined total of at least 200 games, and who were primarily starters for at least a third of their career.

Kinder was the best starting pitcher in the American League in 1949, going 23-6 and leading the league in shutouts (6) and a .793 of winning percentage, with a 130 adjusted ERA. In fact, Kinder's ERA+ for his four years as a starter were 87, 117, 130 and 115. And then, in 1951, the Red Sox, desperate for a relief pitcher, moved him to the pen where he shined as the best reliever in the AL until 1955.

In his 12-year career, Kinder compiled a 102-71 record with 749 strikeouts, a 3.43 ERA, 56 complete games, 10 shutouts, 102 saves, and 1479 innings pitched in 484 games.

Ellis Kinder died in Jackson, Tennessee, at the age of 54.


Twice Top 10 MVP (1949, 1951) Twice led league in winning percentage (1949, 1951) Led league in shutouts (1949) Twice led league in games pitched (63, 1951; 69, 1953) Twice led league in saves (1951, 1953) Pitched a 10 scoreless relief win-game (1951) 4-time led league as the oldest player (1955-57)
