Pud Galvin

Biography:Pud Galvin (December 25, 1856 - March 7, 1902), an American professional baseball pitcher, was Major League Baseball's first 300-game winner. A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Pud played in an era where 2-man pitching rotations were common - thus his 6,003 innings pitched and 646 complete games, both of which are second only to the career totals of Cy Young. Incredibly, Pud pitched over 70 complete games in both 1883 and 1884 and 65 in 1879. He is the only player in baseball history to win 20 or more games in 10 different years without winning a pennant, finishing his career with a total of 364 wins and 310 losses.

The nickname "Pud" supposedly originated because he made the hitters "look like PUDding", a popular phase in the 1880s (like having "legs of jello" when you see a nasty looking pitch heading your way).

Pud Galvin died at age 45, on March 7, 1902 in the Pittsburgh suburb of Allegheny, Pennsylvania. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1965 by the Veterans Committee.
