Howie Camnitz

“The Kentucky Rosebud” blossomed in 1909, tying Christy Mathewson for both the NL lead in winning percentage (.806), and the second-most NL wins (25). Camnitz became Pittsburgh’s sixth 100-game winner in 1912, en route to his third 20-win season in four years. Traded to the Phillies on August 20, 1913, after a 6-17 start, he pitched in just nine games for them, then jumped to Pittsburgh in the Federal League. His brother, Harry, pitched briefly for the 1909 Pirates and 1911 Cardinals.
