Doc Newton

Newton set the single-season NL record for errors by a pitcher (since 1900) with 17 for Cincinnati and Brooklyn in 1901. He had his best season in 1902 for Brooklyn, when he went 15-14 with a 2.42 ERA. New York manager Clark Griffith claimed that Newton’s failure to stay in condition cost the Highlanders the 1906 pennant; Newton was suspended mid-season for dissipation.
