As a rookie sensation with the White Sox in 1913, Russell was 22-16 (1.91). Although
he never matched those figures, he was 18-11 in 1916 and led the AL in winning percentage
(.750) with a 15-5 mark for the World Champion Sox of 1917. Released with a dead
arm early in 1919, he returned to the ML as an outfielder with Pittsburgh in 1922,
hitting .368 with 12 home runs and 75 RBI in only 60 games.
