Default Deadball era/home runs

Posted By: Dwight

Just looking over my great-uncle's pitching stats on SABR and noticed he never gave up a home run during his 25-year career (1909-1934 all in the minor leagues). I realize this was the deadball era, but it seems the ball would have carried out once in a great while. Isn't this highly unusual??

No inside the park homers? And IIR wasn't what we call a ground rule double a homer too back then?

Quite impressive non the less.

The stat may not have been kept at every stop he made. The SABR database is nowhere near complete.

The Minor League Register stats didn't include home runs, either. Though, it did record more challenging stats -- earn runs, walks, strike outs and ERA...
