Mathewson, Christy

in full Christopher Mathewson

born Aug. 12, 1880, Factoryville, Pa., U.S.
died Oct. 7, 1925, Saranac Lake, N.Y.

U.S. baseball pitcher.

Mathewson played football and baseball for Bucknell University and was one of the first college-educated men to enter the major leagues. Throwing right-handed for the New York Giants (1900–16), he won more than 20 games in each of 13 seasons, and 30 or more in four of those years. He ranks third in all-time wins (373) and shutouts (80) and fourth in earned run average (2.13). He played for and managed the Cincinnati Reds (1916–18) and later served as president of the Boston Braves (1923–25). He died of tuberculosis at 45.

▪ American athlete
byname of  Christopher Mathewson  
born Aug. 12, 1880, Factoryville, Pa., U.S.
died Oct. 7, 1925, Saranac Lake, N.Y.
 U.S. professional baseball pitcher, one of the first five players chosen for the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, N.Y. (1936).

      Also known as “Matty” and “Big Six,” he pitched in the National League for the New York Giants from 1900 to 1916 and for the Cincinnati Reds in 1916; he also managed Cincinnati from 1916 to 1918. From 1923 until his death he was president of the Boston Braves in the National League.

      Mathewson was one of the first college men to enter the major leagues, having been a football and baseball player at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pa. For the Giants he won more than 20 games in each of 13 seasons (12 consecutive, 1903–14) and 30 or more on 3 or 4 occasions (29 or 30 in 1903; many old baseball records are in dispute). In 1908 he scored 35 or 37 victories, 11 or 12 of them shutouts. He won 367, 372, or 373 regular-season games in his career while losing only 186 or 188. In four World Series he won five games, pitching three shutouts against the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1905 Series and another shutout against the Athletics in 1913.

      A right-handed thrower and batter, Mathewson was a master of the fadeaway pitch, later called the screwball. Testifying to the pitcher's exceptional control, a Giants' catcher said he could “catch Matty in a rocking chair.” Mathewson was an intelligent, proud, reticent man with great powers of concentration.
