With a finished frame size of approximately 15.5 x 12.5 x 1 inches, this photo of Philadelphia A's pitcher Chief Bender was taken in Philadelphia in 1910. It will surely fit anywhere you deem worth of such a striking and iconic baseball photograph.
Tied for the record of complete games pitched in a World Series, Chief was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953. With a .625 career winning percentage and a 2.46 career ERA, his pitching skills are forever remembered as the agonies of the batters sent back to the dugout are still sometimes heard in the old parks where he once threw heat.
In addition to his playing career Bender was a talent scout, major league coach, minor league manager, college manager and for a time, a college manager.
