41. Christy Mathewson - Why Matty Lasts
An opponent of christy mathewson talks about the famed pitcher s durability. But after thirteen years baseball is still mathewson s favorite sport.

How Matty ...
From The Literary Digest , August 23, 1913 EVERY baseball season produces a new crop of sensational pitchers who figure conspicuously in newspaper headlines from one year to a half dozen, but the fame of Christy Mathewson, of the New York Giants, seems to go on forever. The "Old Master" is the perennial wonder of the game. "Jack" Miller, of the Pittsburg Pirates, said the other day that "Matty" is undoubtedly better this season than he has been since 1908. "He not only has better control," says Miller, "but he has more stuff better speed and a better curve ball." With his record of thirteen years of marvelous pitching, "Matty" is puzzling to a great many fans and players; they can not understand why he lasts so long. One explanation of his longevity is furnished by Max Carey, another Pittsburg player, in an interview printed in the Chicago Post: "Mathewson has the ability and all that," said Carey, "but I believe the main factor that has held him up so long has been his love of the game. Thirteen years is a long time to be under fire. I'm no veteran myself only a youngster at the game; but there are times when I'm tired out and would give a farm to break away for a long rest. "But I've watched Mathewson closely and I've never seen him pitch a ball-game in which he didn't look as if he were having a lot of fun. He always looks as if he had rather be out there pitching than doing anything else. It doesn't look to be work with him, but only pure sport an afternoon's romp as a business man might go out to play golf or tennis.

Drama Explores Rich Life of a Baseball Hero:
The Giants' Christy Mathewson helped turn baseball into a national pastime
Thursday, November 23, 1995
Section: Calendar
Page: F-24
How many of today's young sport fans remember who Christy Mathewson was? Probably not many. And it's a shame. Mathewson was not only a baseball hero, who pitched for the New York Giants early in the century, but he was a man who made an impression on Americans way beyond the outfield walls.
Director Kerrigan Mahan didn't know who Mathewson was when he became involved in Eddie Frierson's one-man play, "MattyAn Evening With Christy Mathewson," opening on Saturday at Studio City's Two Roads Theatre.
Baseball isn't his sport. But theater is, and he has since become fascinated with Mathewson, the man. "He was such a huge star that he was considered one of the finest pitchers in baseball history," Mahan says. "There's so much theater here."
Baseball is Frierson's sport. He pitched baseball for the UCLA Bruins while he was working on a theater arts degree, and later coached baseball for Santa Monica High School, four of those years as varsity head coach. At the same time, he was establishing himself as an actor on television and stage, and working as a voice-over actor, where he originally met Mahan.

1916, thought to be his last photo in a Giant uniform. WJackman 04-12-2005, 04:19 PM John McGraw said:
"Did you ever realize that Mathewson had all the stuff of both right and left-handed pitchers?"
"That fadeaway was almost the exact duplicate of a southpaw's curve. In other words, it broke in on a right-handed batter, instead of away from, as a right-hand pitcher's curve normally does."
"Christy threw the fadeaway between his third and fourth fingers, twisting his wrist to the left as he let the ball roll off the fourth finger."
"The result was a curve he kept low, and that broke slowly toward a right-handed batter. It it had been faster it would have been what we called and in-shoot when we were kids. It was a duplicate of a southpaw's slow curve. So he had the curves of both a left-hander and a right-hander, something no other pitcher in history has boasted."
"Ever since Christy passed along, pitchers have been trying to develop that curve but none has ever done it. It took the longest, most powerful fingers I ever saw to throw that ball. No one yet has appears with that equipment."

  • `The Old Ball Game' serves as a fine introduction to its subject, which is John McGraw, Christy Mathewson, the New York Giants, and to a much lesser extent their whole era of baseball. There is no new or groundbreaking material here for the fan that is already familiar with the subject, but for them it can still serve as a baseball valentine celebrating these heroes and their times. While the book stops far short of its sub title's claim - that McGraw, Mathewson, and the Giants created modern baseball, it does nicely illustrate their importance in the continuing evolution of the game.
    A note on Deford's writing style is necessary. I heard him speaking about this book on NPR, and his oratory was beautifully captivating. He writes in much the same way that he speaks, but what works for him in his spoken word stories is not as effective in print - sometime his language gets in the way of the story rather than moving it along. It was enough of a problem for me to dock a star from my review rating, but I still found the book enjoyable.

The dominant pitcher of his era and one of five all-time greats originally inducted into the Hall of Fame, Mathewson looked like the classic American hero: tall, blond, and blue-eyed, with a reputation for clean living and good sportsmanship that was often held up as a splendid example for the nation's youth. While those virtues were surely exaggerated, his pitching skills were not. He retired with 372 wins (fourth all-time), 78 shutouts (third), and a 2.13 ERA (fifth).
The son of a gentleman farmer, Mathewson attended Bucknell University, where he was class president, an excellent field goal kicker, and, of course, star pitcher. Leaving Bucknell in 1899 to pitch for Taunton (New England League), he advanced to Norfolk (Virginia League) the following year and went 20-2. The Giants bought him for $1,500, but returned him to Norfolk when he lost his first three decisions, declaring the deal cancelled and demanding their money back. He was then drafted by the Reds for $100 and traded to the Giants for sore-armed Amos Rusie, who had not pitched since 1898. Reds' owner John T. Bush was about to buy the Giants and wanted a promising pitcher when he got there.

Educated and self-confident, he was a role model for the youth of his era and one of baseball's greatest pitchers. Mathewson won 373 games in 17 seasons and was among the "Immortal Five" players who were the first inductees into major league baseball's Hall of Fame. The charismatic Mathewson was one of the smartest and most talented pitchers of any era. Except for a short stint with the Cincinnati Reds at the close of his career, Mathewson spent his entire career pitching for John McGraw's New York Giants, one of the best teams of baseball's so-called "dead-ball era." He became a protege and friend of McGraw, one of baseball's greatest managers. Mathewson appeared in four World Series with the Giants. He finished third on the all-time list in victories and shutouts. When his career ended, he spent three seasons as manager of the Reds. Mathewson died at age 45 from tube.....

    Christy Mathewson: The Anti-Canseco
    March 27, 2005 BY HENRY KISOR If Christy Mathewson had come to take your daughter to the prom, you'd not only have given him the keys to your car, you'd also have made him a present of the Lexus. Tall, handsome, articulate, a graduate of Bucknell College and a devout Christian, Mathewson was also a hell of a pitcher for the New York Giants from 1900 to 1916. He threw three straight shutouts in the 1905 World Series. And he wouldn't pitch on Sundays. You might call him the yin to Jose Canseco's yang. You remember Canseco, the notorious author of Juiced, this year's bad-boy baseball best seller. Steroids are good, author Canseco declared, but steroids are bad, witness Canseco admitted. That appalling episode before a congressional subcommittee a couple of weeks ago helps explain why nearly all the best new baseball books every year are driven by nostalgia for the heroes of old perhaps manufactured heroes, heroes with spikes of clay, heroes that really weren't, but heroes nonetheless. There's something comforting about just believing, never mind reality. We mold our role models on nothing but illusions. But there was more reality than dream in the person of Mathewson. This season he has the good fortune to be the subject of a superb writer, Frank Deford of Sports Illustrated. Actually, Mathewson is only half of

    By Robert Palazzo On July 26th, about two weeks ago, my friend Scott and I visited Cooperstown to witness what I consider one of the best individual stage performances I have seen in a long time. What we saw that evening can only be described as captivating; perhaps the most captivating live performance I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. Eddie Frierson, about 40 years old, immerses himself into the character and persona of one of baseball's greats, Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants. Mathewson was inducted posthumously into the inaugural class of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Frierson began his research on the life and career of Mathewson in 1984 and has taken that research and created a stunning portrayal of the man. Using the character of Mathewson, dressed in the clothing of the era, Frierson stimulates our sense of life's ironies, as this performance is about more than baseball, more than the life of Christy Mathewson, but instead about Life, with a capital 'L'; its odd twists and turns, how people's actions affect other people, intentionally, as well as, unintentionally. It's Matty as philosopher, reflecting on life as described in a musical lyric of a contemporary and colleague of his, George M. Cohan: "Life's a funny proposition." The first act (containing six scenes) opens with Frierson on stage already in the Matty character, wearing a NY Giants jersey, trousers and cap, under a wool sweater and scarf; surrounded by an assortment of props - a reading chair; a small table next to the chair, with a pipe rack, glove and baseball on it; a desk and chair; several pieces of luggage that have old advertising pieces propped against them (Mathewson was quite the product endorser in his day); a small green stool; a picture of George M. Cohan; and sheet music scattered all over the floor. Matty tells us how he was raised in a pleasant but strict home. He was taught never to smoke and to always honor the Sabbath; he was true to his mother in one of those cherished rules, as he never participated in a game played on Sunday, at any level of ball. As for smoking, well, that was another story.

    Matty Leads The Giants To Their First Ever Win In San Francisco
    by James E. Elfers   James has recently written a book on the 1913 World Tour featuring the White Sox and Giants. For more information see The Tour to End All Tours Christy Mathewson's arm was gone long before the ides of November. A matchless   1913 season, a World Series win, and touring with the Giants and White Sox everyday   since October 18, had left the Big Six with little of his legendary dazzle. Matty, however   definitely wanted to win this game. Unknown to the crowd of 10,000 crammed into   Recreation Park, his best friend and manager John McGraw, and perhaps even to his wife   Jane, this would be Matty's last appearance with the tour. For his finale Mathewson turned in one of his best performances of the tour.   The grueling transcontinental jaunt across he country by America's two most popular   baseball teams was an unprecedented spectacle. The endless rounds of train travel, sell   out crowds, buffets, handshakes and sport had worn everyone down,  especially the pitchers. Wins had been scarce for the Big Six throughout the tour, the Sox had taken a   perverse delight in teeing off on Matty, and he wanted to level the scales a bit on this   beautiful Saturday afternoon.
