[edit] Biographical Information

Ed Reulbach was a key member of the pitching staff during the greatest years of the Chicago Cubs. He led the league in winning percentage in 1906-08, and was in the World Series four times. In spite of his excellent performances, it was hard to stand out on a team that had a full rotation of top pitchers, with the most prominent being Mordecai Brown.

He won game 3 of the 1907 World Series by a score of 5-1, pitching all nine innings.

Years later, he was a star in the 1915 Federal League, winning 21 games.
