Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Bill Sisler pitched for 43 different teams in a career that spanned from 1923 to 1948 (many sources say he signed over 50 contracts). Only once did he win more than 5 games for a team in a given season, when he was 8-10 for the Staunton Presidents in 1942. Sisler pitched eight games in the International League in 1944 and two games in the American Association in 1945, the highest he would reach.
