Biography

Born on May 5, 1884 in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, Chief Bender (Charles Albert Bender) played for the Philadelphia Athletics, Baltimore Terrapins, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox over the course of his 16 year career. Bender broke into the bigs on April 20, 1903 with the Philadelphia Athletics, and put up a 3.07 ERA in 270 innings pitched in 1903, his rookie year.

There is some disagreement on what was Chief Bender's most productive season. Some believe that it was 1913, when he posted a 2.21 ERA, won 21 games, notched 13 saves and struck out 135 batters. However, others believe that it was 1910, when he posted a 1.58 ERA, won 23 games and struck out 155 batters.
