Ted Lewis

Born in Wales, Lewis signed with the Boston Nationals in 1896 after graduating from Williams College. He won 21 games that season and went 26-8 in 1897, both pennant-winning years for Boston. On June 22, 1898 he won a marathon game in relief and did not walk a batter in 13-2/3 innings. He continued his education during the off-season and coached baseball at Harvard, 1897-1901. After the 1901 season, he retired from baseball to teach full-time at Columbia and later at Williams. He became a prominent educator, eventually serving as president of Massachusetts State College, 1926-27, and the University of New Hampshire from 1927 until his death.
