Boardwalk Brown

Brown got his nickname because he was discovered playing on the sandlots of Atlantic City by a scout for Connie Mack. He was 13-11 for the A’s in 1912 and followed with 17-11 for the pennant winners of 1913, but was not used in the A’s WS victory as Connie Mack used only three pitchers. After a 1-6 start in 1914, he was sold to New York.
