Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Francis "Phenomenal" Smith, (ne John Francis Gammon, (December 12, 1864 - April 3, 1952) was an American Major League Baseball player from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who pitched for six different teams during his eight year career. According to the Museum of New Hampshire History, Smith lived most of his life in New Hampshire and got his nickname when he struck out 16 batters in a game in 1885 while pitching for the Newark Domestics. On June 17, 1885, while playing for the Brooklyn Grays, his team decided to punish him for his perceived brash and cocky demeanor by intentionally committing 14 "errors," losing the game 18-5.
