Today In Brewer History: Happy Birthday, Pink Hawley

On this day in 1872, Emerson Pink Hawley (he went by his middle name) was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. He was 19 years old when he made his major league debut for the 1892 St. Louis Browns (who would eventually become the Cardinals).

Hawley pitched ten seasons in the majors over five teams. His best season was 1895, when he led the Pirates and the National League by pitching 444.1 innings, winning 31 games with a career low 3.18 ERA.

The final season of Hawley's career was 1901, when he pitched in 26 games for the original major league Milwaukee Brewers. He posted a 4.59 ERA that season, and was done as a major leaguer at age 29. Despite not pitching a big league game after his 30th birthday, Hawley is still 132nd on the all time list with over 3000 career innings pitched.

Hawley passed away in 1938 back in Beaver Dam. Today would have been his 139th birthday.
