Hailed as a wonder find by John McGraw when the Giants signed him out of TCU in 1909, Drucke was 12-10 in 1910. He struck out 151 in 215 innings but was wild. His career was cut short when he ruptured an arm muscle in a subway accident. (NLM)
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
June 17, 1910: When Louis Drucke falters against the Pirates in the top of the 9th, Giants manager John McGraw calls for Bugs Raymond to protect the 32 lead. Raymond has supposedly been warming up behind the stands, but apparently had visited a saloon across the way, and swapped a ball for two shots of whiskey. Raymond hits two batters, allows two hits and tosses one wild, and the Pirates win, 63. A furious McGraw suspends the pitcher indefinitely. Bugs will be back on July 5th.
