    Jesse Joseph Haines (July 22, 1893 – August 5, 1978), nicknamed "Pop", was a right-handed pitcher in for the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB). After a lengthy stint in minor league baseball, he played briefly in 1918, then from 1920 to 1937. He spent nearly his entire major league career with the Cardinals. Haines pitched on three World Series championship teams. Though he had a kind personality off the field, Haines was known as a fiery competitor during games.

    After retiring in 1937 with a 210-158 win-loss record, Haines was a coach with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938. He left baseball after that season and returned to his native Ohio. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1970. In 2014, he was inducted into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum. He ranks second in franchise history in shutouts.


    Early life[edit]
    Haines was born in Clayton, Ohio, but he grew up nearby in Phillipsburg, Ohio, where he attended local schools. His father Elias worked as an auctioneer.[1] Haines wanted to play baseball for the local team in Phillipsburg. His parents did not approve of him playing baseball on Sundays, so Haines used to sneak away, hiding his uniform in a corn crib and changing clothes in a cornfield. He left town to play semipro baseball in Dayton in 1912. Soon thereafter, he was signed to play for a minor league team in Dayton.[2]

    Spending several seasons in minor league baseball, Haines also pitched for teams in Saginaw, Fort Wayne, Springfield, Topeka and Tulsa. He had played briefly in the major leagues with the Cincinnati Reds in 1918, but he returned to the minor leagues.[1] Across his minor league career, he compiled a 107–61 record and 1.93 ERA over 187 games.[3]

    Branch Rickey of the St. Louis Cardinals noticed Haines while he was pitching in Kansas City, but the team was struggling with money. He convinced a group of the team's stockholders to take out a $10,000 loan for the purchase of Haines's contract.[1]

    During his minor league days, Haines married Carrie M. Weidner. They had one child.[1]

    Major league career[edit]
    Haines became a fixture in the Cardinals starting rotation in 1920. Despite a 13–20 record, he pitched 3012⁄3 innings, the highest output of his career, and recorded a 2.98 ERA.

    Author Paul Doutrich writes that while Haines was a mild-mannered individual, he had no patience for losing games and "became a raging bull when on the mound."[2] Haines threw a no-hitter on July 17, 1924 against the Boston Braves; more than 50 years passed before a St. Louis pitcher threw another no-hitter.[4]

    Haines pitched on three World Series championship teams, winning two games in the 1926 World Series.[5] In game seven of that series, Haines developed a bleeding blister and had to be removed from the game with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. Grover Cleveland Alexander was inserted into the game and struck out Tony Lazzeri.[6]

    As his career went on, Haines became known as "Pop" because of the influence he exerted on younger teammates. His use of the knuckleball allowed him to extend his career after his other pitches became ineffective. Unlike other knuckleball pitchers who gripped the pitch with their fingertips, Haines actually held the ball with his knuckles, throwing it as hard as he could.[7]

    Haines began to pitch fewer games in 1932. By 1936, manager Frankie Frisch thought that Haines had become too old and held him out of any games until May. However, he got more opportunities that year as the St. Louis pitching staff struggled with injuries. By June, he made relief pitching appearances three days in a row.[8]

    He retired in 1937, having pitched to the age of 43. He won 20 games or more three times for the Cardinals and won three World Series championships (in 1926, 1931, and 1934), though he did not pitch in the 1931 series. In the 1926 World Series against the Yankees, he went 2–0 with a 1.08 ERA. He retired with a 210–158 record, 981 strikeouts, 3.64 ERA, and 32082⁄3 innings pitched.

    Later life[edit]

    Haines' plaque at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
    Haines worked on the coaching staff of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938. After that, he was an auditor for almost thirty years in Montgomery County, Ohio.[1]

    After failing to gain more than 8.3% of the votes for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame over a 12-year period, Haines was voted in by the Veterans Committee (VC) in 1970. Frankie Frisch, a member of the VC, also shepherded the selections of teammates Dave Bancroft and Chick Hafey in 1971, Ross Youngs in 1972, George Kelly in 1973, Jim Bottomley in 1974, and Freddie Lindstrom in 1976.[9] After the committee selected Haines, Frisch commented that Haines was "a worthy, worthy man... a great competitor, a fine fellow off and on the field."[5]

    Making his home in Columbus in his last years, Haines died there in 1978 following a lengthy illness.[10]

    Legacy[edit]
    Alex Remington of Yahoo! Sports has postulated that Haines may be "the worst player in the Hall of Fame."[11]

    In January 2014, the Cardinals announced Haines among 22 former players and personnel to be inducted into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum for the inaugural class of 2014.[12]

    Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as a pitcher for nineteen seasons (1918, 1920 to 1937) with the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals. The possessor of a powerful fastball at the start of his career, he was one of the premier right-handed pitchers in the National League during the 1920s and early 1930s, helping his St. Louis Cardinals reach the World Series five times. Except for a single game in July 1918 when he pitched five innings for the Reds, he spent his entire with St. Louis, being brought out of Minor League ball in 1920 by Branch Rickey. His immediate insertion into the Cardinals starting rotation proved to be extremely beneficial, for he started a League-leading 47 games, and ate up innings, pitching in 301 his rookie year. While his record, 13 Wins and 20 Loses, were not stellar, foreshadowed good things to come. With a full year under his belt, his 1921 season was greatly improved, winning 18 and losing 12. In the next eleven seasons, he would win 20 or more games three times (topping with a 24-10 record in 1927) and fail to win in double digits only once. On July 17, 1924, before a hometown crowd, he pitched a 5-0 No-Hitter against the Boston Braves, the first one in Cardinals history. In 1926, with a 13 win, 4 Loss effort, he helped the Cardinals win the National League Pennant for the very first time. Fielding a team that included greats like Grover Cleveland Alexander, Rogers Hornsby and “Sunny Jim” Bottomley, the Cardinals went head-to-head against the New York Yankees led by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in the subsequent World Series. In an exciting contest that went the full 7 Games, Jesse Haines was in the thick of it. After pitching relief in Game 1 (a Yankees 3-2 win) he started Game 3, and tossed a 5-hit, 4-0 shutout, and helped his own cause by slugging a two-run home run. He wouldn’t pitch again until the deciding Game 7, where he tossed 7 strong innings before developing a blister and being relieved by Pete Alexander with a 3-2 lead (Alexander would famously strike out Tony Lazzeri with a bases loaded, and hold on to preserve the Series Championship for St. Louis). In 1928 his 20-8 record again helped the Cardinals capture the National League Pennant, and again St. Louis met the Yankees in the World Series. The outcome, though, was different, as Ruth, Gehrig and company downed the Cardinals in four straight games (Jesse Haines losing Game 3). In 1930 his Cardinals again won NL crown for the third time in five years, and he pitched the Pennant clincher on September 26 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their opponent this time was Connie Mack’s Philadelphia Athletics, who, much like the Yankees, were stocked with future Hall of Famers (Mickey Cochrane, Jimmy Foxx, Al Simmons and Lefty Grove). Jesse Haines appeared in only one game for the Cards, but he made the most of it, outduelling Grove in Game 4 for a 3-1 Win. The A’s proved too much, though, as they won the Series 4 Games to 2. The teams met in the World Series again in 1931, and this time the Cardinals defeated the A’s, but Haines, with a 12-3 regular season record, did not pitch in the Series. 1931 would be his last year as a full time starter, but, having developed an excellent knuckleball (being tutored in throwing it by pitcher Eddie Rommel), he extended his career by being an effective reliever and occasional spot starter until his retirement at age 44 in 1937. Before then, though he did gain one more piece of a Championship title in 1934, when he appeared in one game of relief during the World Series that year, which pitted the “Gas House Gang” Cardinals of Dizzy Dean, Pepper Martin and Joe Medwick against the Detroit Tigers (the Cards winning 4 Games to 3). When he gained veteran status, he became a father figure for younger players, which earned him the nickname “Pop”. Until the coming of the great Bib Gibson, Jesse Haines held all the Cardinals team pitching records – his 210 Wins are still 2nd on the All-Time team list. In 1970 he was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans committee. His career record was 210 Wins-158 Losses, 555 Games pitched, 24 Shutouts, 981 Strikeouts and a career 3.64 ERA.
