Eppa Rixey was a durable, tenacious left-handed pitcher, whose 266 victories for the Phillies and Reds came while pitching for many second-division teams during his 21 seasons. The tall, slender rookie emerged directly from the University of Virginia campus in 1912, never spending a day in the Minors. He led the National League with 25 wins in 1922 and was still active 11 years later at the age of 42. In 1969, Cincinnati fans named him the franchise's most outstanding left-hander.
