Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jimmy Lavender (James Sanford Lavender May 26, 1884-January 12, 1960) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. Born in Barnesville, Georgia, the right-hander played with the Chicago Cubs from 1912-1916 and with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1917. Lavender primarily threw the spitball in his career and used it to win 16 games as a 28 year old rookie in 1912. He would not equal that success again, winning only 10 or 11 games in each of his last four seasons in Chicago.
