    Ted Breitenstein

    The handsome native St. Louisan dazzled hometown fans by tossing a no-hitter again Louisville in his first major league start (October 4, 1891). Seven years later, he no-hit Pittsburgh. The 5'9" lefty paired with St. Louis-born catcher Heinie Peitz, forming what fans called "the Pretzel Battery." Breitenstein twice led the NL in starts and complete games, but was a 20-game loser five straight seasons (1892-96) with weak Browns teams. He also played 65 games in the outfield. (FJO)
