Stan Coveleskie from the Chronology
Dec 12, 1924 - The Senators pick up 35-year-old Stan Coveleskie from Cleveland in exchange for Byron Speece and Emanuel Carr Smith. Coveleskie‚ a future Hall of Famer‚ will go 20-5 and lead the AL in ERA.
Dec 17, 1920 - The AL votes to allow pitchers who used the spitball in 1920 to continue using it as long as they are in the league. The NL will do the same. There will be 17 designated spitters in all‚ 8 in the NL and 9 in the AL. For the NL‚ the spitball pitchers are: Bill Doak‚ Phil Douglas‚ Dana Fillingim‚ Ray Fisher‚ Marv Goodwin‚ Burleigh Grimes‚ Clarence Mitchell‚ and Dick Rudolph. For the AL: Doc Ayers‚ Ray "Slim" Caldwell‚ Stan Coveleskie‚ Red Faber‚ H.B. "Dutch" Leonard‚ Jack Quinn‚ Allan Russell‚ Urban Shocker‚ and Allen Sothoron. One story has the White Sox forgetting to name Frank Shellenback as a spitball pitcher‚ forcing him to go the PCL to throw a wet one‚ and where he wins 296 games.
