Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles G. Buffinton, born Buffington (June 14, 1861 - September 23, 1907), was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball from 1882 to 1892. One of the workhorse pitchers of the 1880s, he won 20 games seven times and his 1700 career strikeouts are the ninth-highest total of the 19th century. Born in Fall River, Massachusetts, Buffinton - mainly known for his brilliant sinker ball - began his career with the Boston Red Caps/Beaneaters. He played in the days of 2- or 3-man pitching staffs and was a big part of many of his teams' successes. From 1883 to 1885 he was one of Boston's two principal pitchers along with Jim Whitney; together they picked up 62 of Boston's 63 wins in 1883 when the Beaneaters took the pennant.show more
