Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Adrian Joss (April 12, 1880 - April 14, 1911) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He pitched his entire nine-year baseball career for the Cleveland Bronchos/Naps (1902-1910). He was born in the unincorporated community of Woodland in Dodge County, Wisconsin, where his father was a cheese maker. Several of his nicknames in baseball reflected this. As a youth, Joss was a star athlete at Wayland Academy in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. As a town ball player, Joss pitched in, and won, the Wisconsin town championship game against Rube Waddell who was playing as a 'ringer' while 'moonlighting' away from his job in the Major Leagues-fishing.show more
