    Clarence Mitchell


    The NL's only lefthanded legal spitballer after 1920, Mitchell was a starter in all or parts of 18 ML seasons, but not until 1931 with the Giants, at age 40, did he win as many as 13 games. Often used in the field and as a pinch hitter, in 1922 he played 42 games at first base for Brooklyn, pitched in only five, and batted .290. Mitchell was the ill-fated Dodger whose liner started Bill Wambsganss's unassisted triple play in the 1920 World Series; two innings later, he hit into a double play, thus accounting for five outs in two at-bats.
