About Fred Frankhouse

Frederick Meloy "Fred" Frankhouse (April 9, 1904 – August 17, 1989) was an American baseball pitcher who played 13 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1927 to 1939. His specialty pitch was "the old roundhouse curve", and he was often referred to as a “spitballer” during his career as a pitcher. Frankhouse played in the National League for the St. Louis Cardinals (1927–1930), the Boston Braves (1930–1935), the Brooklyn Dodgers (1936–1938), and the Boston Bees (1939) In 1928, Frankhouse went to the World Series with the Cardinals but never got a chance to pitch. He did, however, receive a World Series ring with the rest of his team. In 1934, Frankhouse was a member of the All-Star roster. He made his major league debut on September 11, 1927 for the St. Louis Cardinals, and played his last game September 25, 1939 vs. New York Giants as a pitcher for the Boston Bees.
