Eddie Foster

The 5’6″ Foster was widely regarded as the best hit-and-run man of his day. His clutch hitting deprived Eddie Plank of his last bid for a no-hitter. In Plank’s final season, with the 1917 Browns, the 42-year-old pitcher had gone 8-2/3 innings without allowing Washington a hit. He walked a batter, and Foster doubled him home to end Plank’s bid.
