Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Henry Root (March 17, 1899 - November 5, 1970) was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs for sixteen seasons from 1926 to 1941. He holds the club record for games, innings pitched, and career wins with 201. Born in Middletown, Ohio, Root began his career on April 18, 1923 with the St. Louis Browns. On October 1, 1932, he threw the pitch that Babe Ruth allegedly predicted he would hit into the seats in the 1932 World Series at Wrigley Field in Chicago (see: Babe Ruth's Called Shot). Root, however, said that Ruth hadn't pointed to the bleachers.show more
