Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bernard Anthony Boland (January 21, 1892 - September 12, 1973) was a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Detroit Tigers (1915-20) and St. Louis Browns (1921). Boland was a reliable pitcher for five years before suffering a broken arm. Using his sharp breaking curve, Boland once struck out Babe Ruth three times in one game. Born in Rochester, New York, Boland made his major league debut in 1915 with the Detroit Tigers. Boland was 13-7 with a 3.11 ERA in his rookie season and came within one batter of throwing a no hitter. On August 16, 1915, Boland retired the first 26 Cleveland Indians batters he faced, only to give up a hit to Ben Paschal. Paschal's hit off Boland was his only hit of the 1915 season.show more
