 Biographical Information
Slim Sallee, a long-time National League pitcher mostly in the dead-ball era, pitched against the Chicago White Sox in both the 1917 World Series and the 1919 World Series. Not surprisingly, his ERA was much better in the 1919 Series.
In 1919 he would win 21 games while striking out just 24 batters in 227.7 innings. It's the lowest strike out total for anyone winning 20+ games in a season.
Prior to the majors Slim played for Meridian, Birmingham and Williamsport. After the majors he played for Toledo.
After baseball he ran businesses in Higginsport, OH.
