[edit] Biographical Information

George "Dut" Chalmers pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies for seven years in the deadball era. His best year was 1911 when he went 13-10. He was third on the team in victories as Pete Alexander won 28 games.

He pitched in the fourth game of the 1915 World Series, losing 2-1 to Ernie Shore. The winning run scored in the sixth inning when Duffy Lewis doubled home clean-up hitter Dick Hoblitzel, who had singled. Lewis' double was the only extra-base hit that Chalmers allowed that day.

Chalmers is the only major league player to have that last name as of 2013, and is one of only eight major leaguers to have been born in Scotland. Most of the players born in Scotland played early in the history of baseball - although Chalmers played in the majors from 1910-1916, he was the sixth of the eight players. Only Bobby Thomson and Tom Waddell came after him.

Baseballlibrary.com says he was a spitballer who went 25-6 for Scranton in 1910 before the Phillies picked him up.
