Biographical Information[edit]

The New York Times described Pete Schmidt as a "local boy" in its article about the one game in which Schmidt pitched in St. Louis. The 1913 Browns had gone out to a large lead and Schmidt was brought in to pitch the last of the game against the 1913 Yankees.

In spite of his Germanic-sounding name, Frederich Christoph Herman Schmidt was called "Pete" in the Times article and he was born in Iowa, not in Germany.
