100 Greatest Phillies: 63 – Lee Meadows

Lee Meadows
Starting Pitcher
1919-1923

Career w/Phillies: 857 IP / 48-61 / 3.64 ERA / 307 K

“Specs” Meadows wore glasses on the field, thus his nickname. He also had his best years with the Pirates, winning 19 games three times. With the Phillies, he did win 16 games once, and more than 10 three times. Meadows sadly wasn’t a very good control pitcher, walking as many hitters as he struck out, and hitting 30 batters with the Phils.

Comment: Another case of a deceiving record, Meadows was on some bad teams. He gave up little in the way of runs, and always pitched a lot — pitching more than 230 times three times with the Phils. An under-appreciated arm.
