Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jacob Erskine Mayer (born James Erskine Mayer, January 16, 1889 - March 10, 1957) was an American baseball player who played for three different Major League Baseball teams during the 1910s. In his eight-year career, Mayer played for the Philadelphia Phillies, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Chicago White Sox. A right-handed pitcher, Mayer's repertoire of pitches included a curve ball which he threw from a sidearm angle. As a result of his curve ball, then Brooklyn Dodgers manager Wilbert Robinson called Mayer "Eelskine" because the pitch was "so slippery."show more
