He pitched in the major leagues from 1903 to 1916.

You know what I'm noticing about a lot of these pitchers? How short their careers were. Brown was a regular for 13 years. Like many of the others, he started what appears to be late (age 26) - product of the minors back then? Strange.
As for Brown, he's an easy choice. 15th alltime in park-adjusted relative ERA. When you consider that four of the guys ahead of him are still active (Martinez, Clemens, Santana, Oswalt), two are relievers (Quisenberry, Wilhelm), and four had very short careers (Wood, Joss, Devlin, and Spalding), he's in a very exclusive group, up there with Grove, Johnson, Walsh, Nichols, and Young.

A fine HoF caliber pitcher for the Cubs during the 1900's. Fourteen seasons, including two in the Federal League. 295 RSAA is great.

yes, despite the fact that he actually had 4-1/2 fingers, not 3
