William Henry "Big Bill" James (January 20, 1887 - May 25, 1942) was a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball. From 1911 through 1919, he played for the Cleveland Naps (1911-1912), St. Louis Browns (1914-15), Detroit Tigers (1915-1919), Boston Red Sox (1919) and Chicago White Sox (1919). Bill was a switch hitter and threw right handed. He was born in Detroit, Michigan. In an eight-season career, Big Bill posted a 65-71 record with 408 strikeouts and a 3.20 ERA in 1179.2 innings pitched. In 1917, Chick Gandil and his teammate, Charles 'Swede' Risberg, allegedly collected $45 from each member of the White Sox and paid off the Detroit Tigers in two crucial doubleheaders late in the season.
