[edit] Biographical Information

Joe Conzelman pitched three seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates, winning 6 games and getting 2 saves.

Conzelman was born in Bristol, CT and attended Brown University in Rhode Island from 1910-12. The 1912 Brown team went 19-5 under coach Harry Pattee, and also included Ed Warner and Ken Nash.

Joe made his major league debut in May 1913, and in three games that season gave up only 2 earned runs in 13 innings. Most of his time that year, however, was spent with Atlanta, with whom he went 11-4.

He was apparently up the entire season with the 1914 Pirates, appearing in 33 games and posting a 2.94 ERA (the league ERA was 2.78). The next season he had 18 games in the majors and also 10 games with Indianapolis, for whom he had a 2.04 ERA.

In 1922 the proceedings of the American Society of Civil Engineers state that he was an associate member, living in Birmingham, AL.

The Brown University site, which says Conzelman was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 1971, states that he had a fast ball and a sharp drop ball.

There was also a Joe Conzelman who played for Harvard University in the 1950's. Presumably Joe's son, he was named Joseph Harrison Conzelman, Jr., and was a resident of Mountain Brook, AL, where the senior Conzelman had died. The son, in addition to being a three-sport athlete at Harvard, was chairman of Southeast Materials Corporation.
