[edit] Biographical Information

Leon Cadore was the first player from Gonzaga University to make the major leagues. He is listed as attending there in 1906-1908, although that would mean he started at age 15.

Almost all of his major league career was with the Brooklyn Robins. He was the same age as teammate Casey Stengel. He won in double figures four times, and appeared in the 1920 World Series, where he lost Game 4 to Stan Coveleski.

Cadore and Joe Oeschger are famous for the 26-inning tie that they pitched against each other in 1920. It is said that Cadore faced 96 batters and spent the next 36 hours in bed.
