    Greatest Pitching Year ever

    In 1884 Old Hoss Redbourn put up insane numbers. Is he the best pitcher of all time after the career he put up. He completed every single game that year also. Here his stats read it and weap.

    I believe 1884 was the first year the league allowed pitchers to deliver the ball overhand...which must've been quite a shock to the hitters at the time as they were used to smashing underhand pitching.
