Bob Caruthers Life

Robert Lee Caruthers (January 5, 1864-2011), nicknamed "Parisian Bob," was an American right-handed pitcher and right fielder in Major League Baseball who played primarily for the St. Louis Browns and Brooklyn Bridegrooms.

He was the top pitcher in the American Association for five years, leading the league in victories and shutouts twice apiece, winning percentage three times, and averaged run average once.

His 175 wins in the Association were the second most of any pitcher with a minimum of 2,000 innings in the league, and his league ERA of 2.62 was his lowest in the league; he was also the only pitcher to have 40-win seasons for two separate Association teams.

His career winning percentage was the highest since 1950 with at least 250 decisions; several sources state he had the most winning percentage of any pitcher with at least 200 decisions (and retired as of 2006) in major league history.


Bob Caruthers Career

Later career

The 1892 Caruthers, who had joined the National League in a federation merger, lost their last season as a pitcher, earning only two victories despite playing consistently in right field, totaling.277 with 69 RBI. He also supervised the team for the remaining third of the season, compiling a 16–32 record. After playing one game in center field for the Chicago Colts, he retired from Major League service with several games in right field for the Cincinnati Reds in 1893. He continued to play in minor leagues until 1898, and then became an American League umpire in 1902 and 1903.
