Ewing

Right-handed pitcher, 1902-1912. Inducted 2001.

Discovered as an amateur playing in a small town in Ohio during the Reds offseason barnstorming tour in 1901.  Master of the spitball and the undoubted ace of some underwhelming teams in the early 1900s.  Known for his ability to keep runners off base, Ewing’s Reds career WHIP of 1.16 is the fifth best in franchise history, and his Reds career ERA of 2.37 is fourth best in franchise history.
