Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1905 Cincinnati Reds season was a season in American baseball. The team finished fifth in the National League with a record of 79 wins and 74 losses, 26 games behind the New York Giants. The Reds were coming off a third place finish in 1904, as they went 88-65, eighteen games behind the powerful New York Giants. The 88 wins by Cincinnati was their highest total since 1898. Player-manager Joe Kelley returned for his fourth season. Kelley moved from first base to the outfield, as the Reds acquired first baseman Shad Barry from the Chicago Cubs very early in the 1905 season. Some other new faces on the team included pitcher Orval Overall, who went 32-25 with a 2.78 ERA in 56 starts with the Tacoma Tigers of the Pacific Coast League in 1904, and pitcher Charlie Chech, who joined Cincinnati from the St. Paul Saints of the American Association. Chech had a 27-8 record in 35 starts.show more
