William "Chief" Chouneau, born William Cadreau, pitched one game in the majors at a young age, for the Chicago White Sox in 1910. He pitched five scoreless innings, but then Sam Crawford hit a triple off him that started a rally. Chouneau was an Ojibwe Native American, and not much is known about his early life. He played a number of years in the minors, and was signed by the White Sox after developing a reputation as a strikeout pitcher with Ashland. Little is also known about his life after baseball, although his death certificate listed him as a laborer and stated that he had served as a private in World War I.
