Happy Birthday to pitcher Mysterious Walker, born March 21, 1884.
Mysterious was a pitcher for the Reds, Naps, Superbas, Rebels, and Tip-Tops, from 1910 – 1915.
He had a 7-23 lifetime record, with a 4.00 ERA. His best season was with the Dodgers in 1913, when he went 1-3 in 8 starts, with one complete game and a 3.55 ERA.
No one knows how he came to be called “Mysterious.”
Perhaps a family name?
