Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph Christopher Cleary (December 3, 1918 - June 3, 2004) was a Major League Baseball pitcher for one game in 1945. The right-hander was born in Cork, and he was the last native of Ireland to appear in a major league game. He also holds the major league record for the highest ERA of any pitcher who retired a batter. Cleary pitched one game in relief for the Washington Senators on August 4, 1945. In the 4th inning of game 2 of a doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox, he gave up 8 baserunners (5 hits and 3 walks) and 7 earned runs in just 1/3 of an inning. World War II amputee Bert Shepard came in to relieve and pitched the final 5 1/3 innings, giving up just one run.show more
