Gus Weyhing

Weyhing was one of 19th-century baseball’s outstanding pitchers, having his best years before the mound was moved from 50′ away from home plate to 60’6″ in 1893. He won 30 or more games in four seasons, more than 20 in three others; he was also a seven-time 20-game loser. In 1888, he pitched a no-hitter for Philadelphia against Kansas City (American Association). Weyhing holds the career record for hit batsmen, 286. His younger brother John Weyhing pitched briefly in the AA in 1888-89.
