Mordecai Brown

Mordecai “Three Finger” Brown is shown here in 1909, when he compiled a 27 –9 mark. In 1906, 1907, and 1910, he allowed the fewest base runners per inning of any pitcher in the league. From 1906 through 1910, “Miner” performed at a level that puts him among the most dominating pitchers in the history of baseball. (NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME LIBRARY, COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.)
