Quote[edit]

  • Grover and his brother Lou Lowdermilk both pitched for the 1911 Cardinals. Grover was 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) and lean, with long fingers, and was favorably compared to Walter Johnson - except that he couldn't control his blazing fastball. He was a member of the 1919 Black Sox but was not involved in the scandal.William A. Borst
