You can learn little from victory. You can learn everything from defeat.
"Christy" Mathewson (August 12, 1880 – October 7, 1925), nicknamed "Big
Six", "The Christian Gentleman", or "Matty", was an American Major
League Baseball right-handed pitcher. He was among the most dominant
pitchers of his (or any) era and ranks in the all-time top-10 in major
pitching categories such as wins,
shutouts, and ERA. In 1936, Mathewson was elected into the Baseball Hall
of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
