Jim Weaver

Big Jim was 6’6″ and threw hard, but when he needed another pitch, he became one of the first to throw a forkball. He had extremely large hands, but the use of the pitch left his right hand deformed. Though he never had a losing season, he was cut loose three times by teams about to win a pennant. He went 14-8 for Pittsburgh in both 1935 and 1936.
