    Ever Hear of Charlie Ferguson?

    Introducing Charles J. Ferguson:
    Born: April 17, 1863, Charlottesville, VA
    Died: April 29, 1888, Philadelphia, PA, at age of 25, of typhoid fever
    BB/TR; 6'0, 165


    He attracted attention while pitching for the independent Richmond, VA team. He shut out Boston's ML team on 4 singles.

    In 1884, he signed with the Philadelphia Nationals.

    In 1884, he went 21-25 for them. 3.54 ERA;

    In 1885, he was 26-20. 2.22 ERA. In 61 games, he hit .308, .368, .379

    In 1886, he was 30-9. ERA - 1.98. Finished with 11 straight wins.

    In 1887, he was 22-10. 3.00 ERA; In 72 games, he hit .337, .417, .470, which included 14 doubles, 6 triples, and 3 homers, in only 264 ABs.

    Now one might say that he was a fairly good pitcher, but others were even better. And you would be right. But, . . . pitching wasn't all of Charlie's talents.

    He was a superlative player in the field too. In fact, when he wasn't pitching, he was doing duties elsewhere, and very well at them too.

    He played OF 53 games, 2B 27 games, and 3B 8 games. His versatility was rare, even for a league in its formative stages, where specialization hadn't locked in yet, and many players were noted for their ability to be plugged in to a variety of utility positions, including pitching.

    Twice he hit over .300 with power. He covered CF with good speed.

    At the end of 1887, his team had the chance to finish 2nd. So Charlie played 2B for the final 17 games, when he wasn't pitching. He won 7 games, hit .361 and fielded .963. His team won 16 of its last 17 games and came in 2nd.

    --------W-----L------PCT------G-----SH------INN-------BB----So----ERA
    -------99-----64-----.607-----183----13-----1514-------290---726---2.67

    Bill Hanna had this to say about Charlie, in a June, 1924 article for Baseball Magazine.

    "Ferguson belongs in the "twenty-five" because he was the game's best all around player. There have been men who could look after as many positions, but none who could play them all so well. Ferguson was a good (garbled) regular of any ball club of the present; he was a good second baseman, not just a fill-er-in, but good: he could play the outfield well enough to make the absence of the regular no handicap, and he was a first class batter. There hasn't been an all around man since his day to equal him."

    Wilbert Robinson had this to say about Charlie. In June, 1931, rated him 5th greatest player of all time.
    "Hans Wagner was one. Back in the old, old days the Phillies had a man who could pitch like a streak and play the infield, too. His name was Charley Ferguson. You can't leave him off. There's Hughey Jennings, too. He was an unbeatable shortstop. As I said before, it's unfair to name just a few. Think of the many good ones I've never seen! But if I have to name the best five you can put down Cobb, Keeler, Ruth, Wagner and Ferguson for me."

    From Baseball Magazine, January, 1916, pg. 22 WM. A. Phelon

    “There are fans today who swear Bill Lange was the greatest of all the players – he could hit like Delahanty, steal bases just like Cobb, and play half a dozen field positions more than middling well. Still others of an earlier day place Charlie Ferguson upon the pedestal – for Ferguson, as the story goes, could do anything that Cobb, Lange and Delahanty ever did, and, in addition, was a mighty pitcher. But Ferguson’s career was too short; he died too soon; and the man to wear the laurels of Time’s greatest player surely must be one whose big league history was one extending over many years.”

    Ferguson pitched the first no-hitter in Philles history in 1885 against the Providence Grays. His 30 wins in 1886 placed him 6th, only one win behind Chicago White Stocking Jim McCormick, and 12 wins behind the Detroit Wolverine’s Lady Baldwin and the New York Giant’s Tim Keefe who led the National League that year with 42 wins. . His 1.98 ERA that year, was second only behind St Louis Maroon’s Harry Boyle who finished up the year at 1.76. Ferguson also had two saves that year finishing at the top in that category. He finished second in shutouts, tying teammate Dan Casey.

    I guess it was difficult for them to look at everything objectively. Those writers didn't have the same 20/20 hindsight we have today and were probably going by what they either saw themselves or what, I'm sure, influential writing and stories they heard back then.

    Actually, there's a very good explanation.

    He was dead.

    He was born in April and died shortly after his 25th birthday. He pitched the last game of the season on October 8, 1887 against the New York Giants. Phillies won 6-3. Ferguson and Jack Clement formed the battery that day.

    Unfortunately, the Chicago-Pittsburg game is the only one in the Chicago Tribune with a detailed box score that day. I can tell which runs came in which innings and who the pitchers and catchers were, but that's about it.



    Philadelphia scored all six of their runs in the first two innings and the Giants staged a late comeback that obviously fell short.

    "There seemed to be no limit to his virtues, but his end came all too suddenly. In the spring of 1888 he contracted typhoid fever and died 12 days after his 25th birthday." (The Biographical Encyclopedia, from the editors of Total Baseball, 2000, pp. 350)

    Alot of early players died of things we take for granted now

    Especially Typhoid fever, blood poisoning and Bright's Disease (a kidney ailment that killed the most ballplayers IIRC)

    TB and malaria were also big problems - especially malaria with men who played in the south or in latin america -- some of these medical conditions were sometimes used as a polite euphemism for syphilis and cirrhosis or similar ailments

    TB, malaria/typhoid fever and pneumonia killed a lot more than bright's disease

    players were sometimes placed in sanitoriums and such for what we now call rehab but what was often referred to then as TB or another ailment

    One of my proudest projects is my sports writers index. Have over 600. You would be surprised how many died in their 40's. I am. Often were sick for 2 weeks or less, and gone.

    Oh, what did you say? You question me? Well then. Take a gander at these early ages of death for sports writers, announcers, owners, managers, coaches, umpires, scouts, etc.

    bright's disease was hardly the killer suggested - i am well aware of the deadballera.com and it proves my point more than the bright's disease argument - that tb (consumption) and pnemonia were greater concerns

    that list is not comprehensive in the least and it does not include anyone other than major league ballplayers who for the most part lived in the north, especially, northeast

    malaria was prevalent in the south and took a great many lives of baseball men in the minors, negro leagues and in latin america - the terms malaria and typhoid fever were often used interchangeably

    and of course, the spanish flu killed 20-40 million worldwide at the end of wwi

    You know, it's a funny thing, what stuff is remembered. Few know it today, but around 1917-18, the Spanish Influenza decimated the entire world, and killed more people than WWI did. And yet hardly any attention is mentioned to it today.

    I don't know if any ballplayers died of it and they called it pneumonia or something else.

    Wikipedia article on the 1918 Spanish Flu

    Wikipedia article on the Black Death (Bubonic Plague)

    The Spanish flu was first detected at an army barracks in Kansas in March 1918. It spread quickly killing 675,000 Americans and between 20 and 40 million worldwide within months. This epidemic was unusual in that the bulk of its sufferers were neither young nor old.

    pro baseball players to die in military service due to the spanish flu:
    Harry Acton
    Larry Chappell
    Harry Glenn
    Frank Healey
    John Inglis
    Arthur Kimbro
    Ralph Worrell

    there is a book coming out at the end of the year or so about the end of baseball careers for reasons other than the normal injuries, retirements, etc.

    Here's the scarey part. Like the Bubonic Plague (Black Death) that decimated the world in the Middle Ages, the influenza virus pandemic of 1918 was never stopped by a cure. The virus mutated out of being able to kill humans.

    These scarey invisible viral mutants come from out of the blue and continue mutating. The 'bird flu' of today could evolve like that. The faster we develope drugs to cure them, the faster they mutate mathmathically around the drugs.

    Frank Arellanes also died of Influenza during that outbreak Burgess

    Add Frank Arellanes to the list of fatalities from Spanish Influenza. Ironically, he was first Mexican American in the majors.
