If you have visited the suite level of Fifth Third Field, you’ve probably noticed that each of the 32 suites features a photo of a prominent player with ties to the Mud Hens. Over the next few weeks we’ll take a look at those former players. The photo on the fifth suite features a player who saw action with Toledo teams in 1894-95 and from 1897-1902. In fact, no other player has played in more games for a Toledo professional team. Who is he?
The answer to last Thursday’s question? The photo on the fourth suite features a player who also played for the Toledo Blue Stockings in 1884. But this individual is better known for having the seventh-highest win total among pitchers who are NOT in the Hall of Fame. Who is he? He is Tony Mullane, who also is known as a pitcher who could pitch both right-handed and left-handed. He would stand on the mound (without a glove), and decide just before each pitch which arm he would use to throw.
