    Ray Caldwell

    The 6'2" spitballer was once struck by lightning while pitching for the Yankees. He recovered, finished the game, and beat the Athletics 2-1. Caldwell won 19 for New York in 1915, and had his only 20-victory season with Cleveland in 1920. One of the veteran spitballers allowed to continue using the pitch after it was banned, he helped pitch the Indians to a pennant, but lost his only WS start. A lifetime .248 batter, Caldwell played 46 games in the outfield, and in 1915 led the AL with 33 pinch-hitting at-bats. (JK)
