A member of the St. Louis Browns for his entire career, Carl Weilman was unique for his time as a 6’ 5” Pitcher.  Nowadays, hurlers his size are commonplace but in the 1910s he was a curiosity.  He was also a good Pitcher.

Debuting in 1912, the southpaw came into his own in 1914, and in that season and the two after would see him win at least 17 Games with a sub 2.40 ERA.  In those three years, Weilman was in the top eight in bWAR and Wins.

Tuberculosis took Weilman out for most of 1917 and the entirety of 1918, and he was frankly not expected to come back at all.  He did for two more years, which was incredible in itself, and while ’19 was good, ’20 was not, and he retired shortly after.

Weilman would have a record of 84-93 and 536 Strikeouts.
