Allen Sothoron

Sothoron shared the AL lead with 19 losses for the Browns in 1917, but went 20-13 two years later. A spitballer who was among those permitted to continue to use the outlawed pitch after 1919, he was a clever baseball man and respected teacher. Called Dixie because of his usually misspelled and mispronounced name, Sothoron managed in the minors and coached for both St. Louis teams, briefly taking over as Browns manager in 1933.
