Reulbach had extremely poor eyesight, so his catchers would paint the centers of their gloves white, to provide Big Ed with a target he could see. The strategy worked splendidly. Reulbach is the only pitcher in history to pitch both games of a doubleheader and win both games by shutout. The righthander amassed 181 wins against a meager 105 losses. He also pitched in four World Series, pitching 33 innings and picking up two wins against no defeats. As a final measure of Reulbach’s prowess, his lifetime ERA of 2.28 has been bettered by only ten pitchers in history. This amazing Reulbach Cracker Jack has no peer. No examples have ever graded higher.
