This day in baseball: Haas walks too many

On June 23, 1915, Bruno Haas of the Philadelphia Athletics pitched a complete game against the Yankees at Shibe Park. Haas lost the contest 15-7, however, giving up 16 walks over those 9 innings. It is a post-1900 record for a 9-inning game that stands to this day.

Records for most walks in a game are shown below, courtesy of Baseball Almanac.

  1. Both Van Haltren and Seymour went on to have good careers as everyday players (Seymour won a batting title in 1905). Looking at those numbers, I understand why they were good everyday players (and not pitchers). Thanks for this info.
