Baseball Player
    (May 5, 1857-October 1, 1929)
    Born in Sheffield, Ohio
    Birth name is John Lee Richmond
    Pitcher/Outfielder for the Boston Red Stockings (1879), Worcester Worcesters (1880-1882), Providence Grays (1883) and the Cincinnati Red Stockings (1886)
    Pitched the very first perfect game in Major League history (June 12, 1880)
    He was one of eight children.
    The longest time he played for a team in the majors was three years.
    Despite his successful 1880 season, Worcester finished 5th place with a 40-43 losing record.
    He had arm problems in his time in Providence.
    His comeback in Cincinnati was a disappointment.
    He used to play baseball and football for Brown University.
    He was the first left-handed Major League pitcher to win 30 or more games in a season, going 32-32 in 1880.
    He tossed a drop ball, a rising fastball and a successful curveball (despite a Brown physics professor who tried to convince him than a ball curving in mid-air was impossible).
    The perfect game he pitched, helped Worcester defeated the Cleveland Blues, 1-0.
    He was able to graduate from Brown University a few days following his perfect game.
    After his baseball career, he worked as a physician and as a high school chemistry teacher.
