Career highlights and awards

Horace Owen Eller (July 5, 1894 Muncie, IN - July 18, 1961 Indianapolis, IN) was a pitcher with a 5 year career from 1917 to 1921. He played for the Cincinnati Reds of the National League. He was an above average pitcher, compiling 60 wins in 88 career starts and an excellent 2.62 ERA (108 Adjusted ERA+). Eller was the ace of the World Champion 1919 Reds, winning in the infamous Black Sox series. Eller pitched very well in the series, tossing a shutout in game five and a complete game win in the deciding game eight.

The Baseball Record Book records that on August 21, 1917, Eller struck out three batters on nine pitches in the ninth inning of a 7-5 win over the New York Giants. However, the New York Times from the day after the game noted that Eller allowed a single to start that inning, and so did not officially achieve an immaculate inning. [1]
