Dowling pitched in 117 games over 4 seasons, with a record of 39-65. His ERA of 3.87 was a bit below average, but not much.
Louisville closed up shop in 1899, and unlike Honus and Fred, Pete didn't make it to the 1900 Pittsburgh Pirates. He did appear, however, in the brand-new American League in 1901, first with the 1901 Milwaukee Brewers for 10 games and then for the 1901 Cleveland Blues for 33 games. Although he was second on the team in victories for Cleveland, he did not come back the following year.
His lifetime batting average was .199.
One article says that Connie Mack signed Dowling to a contract with the 1900 Milwaukee Brewers, and that Dowling had previously had troubles with drinking too much. It also says that he pitched a no-hitter for the team in 1900, but in 1901 was dropped from the team for disciplinary reasons.
