[edit] Biographical Information

1887 baseball card for Charlie Ferguson

Pitcher Charlie Ferguson won more than 20 games in each of his four seasons in the majors but died of typhoid fever shortly after turning 25 years old.

He was not only a very good pitcher, but also an excellent hitter. His manager all four years was Harry Wright, in his first years managing the Philadelphia Quakers.

He pitched a no-hitter in 1885.

His obituary in the Philadelphia Inquirer says he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1882 and then pitched a team to the Eastern League championship. He died with a widow but no children, as he had buried an infant daughter the previous year.
