Myles Thomas

The August 22 1925 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained a photo of a pitcher for the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team who was in some demand:


When I looked Myles Thomas up in Baseball Reference, I discovered that he had a 28-8 record for the Maple Leafs, who were considered a class AA club at that time. No wonder he was in demand!

However, he didn’t wind up with the Chicago Cubs – in 1926, he landed with the New York Yankees. He pitched for the Yankees and Washington Senators from 1926 to 1930, with middling success. He did appear in 108 major league games in total, which is a lot more than many players.

After his major league career ended, Thomas pitched in the minor leagues until 1935. He passed away in 1963.
