This day in baseball: Chesbro’s 41 wins

Jack Chesbro of the Highlanders recorded his 41st win of the season on October 7, 1904 when he defeated Boston, 3-2.  Chesbro’s 41 wins are the most in a single season by a pitcher in “modern era” major league baseball (the modern era defined as having begun in 1901).
