[edit] Biographical Information

Larry Twitchell is remembered for his 1887 season, when he went 11-1 as a pitcher and .333 as a hitter with the 1887 Detroit Wolverines, who won the equivalent of the 1887 World Series.

Twitchell was an outfielder and pitcher during his nine-season major league career. As early as the spring of 1887 he said about his pitching that if his arm gave out "again", he would focus on being an outfielder.

Not normally a great hitter, he also went .310 for the 1893 Louisville Colonels.

After his major league days he played for the Milwaukee Brewers in the minors, and managed them in 1895-96.

He showed up in 1921 for an Old Timers' Game in Cleveland, and a photo was taken of him along with many other former major leaguers, including Cy Young and Nap Lajoie. Cleveland Old Timers
