Sam Leever

Biography:Sam Leever (December 23, 1871 - May 19, 1953), nicknamed "The Goshen Schoolmaster", was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who spent his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He began his career on May 26, 1898 with the Pirates and ended his big league playing career on September 26, 1910.

Born in Goshen, Ohio, Leever came into baseball after an earlier career as a schoolteacher. He won 25 games in 1903 to help the Pirates win their third consecutive National League pennant, but lost both his starts in the 1903 World Series as the heavily favored Pirates were upset by Boston. He later went 8-1 for the 1909 Pirates, when they won their first World Series title. His lifetime ERA was 2.47 with a 194-100 record, 847 strikeouts, 39 shutouts, 241 complete games, 587 walks, and only 29 home runs allowed in 2660.2 innings during his career.

Leever died at age 81 in Goshen.
