Robert George Kline [Junior] (December 9, 1909 - March 16, 1987) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for three different teams between the 1930 and 1934 seasons. Listed at 6' 3," 200 lb., Kline batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Enterprise, Ohio. A fastball thrower, Kline did almost everything a pitcher is asked to do. He started and filled various relief roles coming out from the bullpen as a closer, middle reliever, and set-up man as well. He entered the majors in 1930 with the Boston Red Sox, playing for them four years before joining the Philadelphia Athletics (1934) and Washington Senators (1934). While in Boston, he learned to pitch a sinker from roommate Wilcy Moore which helped him to win 11 games in 1932.
