#110 Cal McLish

Cal McLish  Cincinnati Reds

Career: He pitched for seven different clubs over a 15-year career that began in the mid '40s. He was a 'late bloomer' and won 37 games with Cleveland in 1958/59 after turning 32. Finished with a career mark of 92-92.

In 1960: This was his only season with the Reds after being traded from the Indians in the off-season. It was a disappointing year as he went 4-14 following his All-Star worthy campaign in 1959.

Off The Charts: His given name is Calvin Coolidge Julius Caesar Tuskahoma McLish. He picked up a save in his only All-Star appearance, the second of the two 1959 ASGs.


  1. Just imagine having to sign your full name on documents. yikes.

  2. Right up there with Alan Mitchell Edward George Patrick Henry "Dirty" Al Gallagher!

  3. The two All-Star games have confused me since I heard about them. For example... was Cal not selected to the first All-Star game that year? Or was he selected, but just didn't enter the game?
