From 1909 to 1920, he played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Browns, Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians, and Chicago White Sox. In a nine-season career, Lowdermilk posted a 23–39 record with 296 strikeouts and a 3.58 earned run average in 590-1/3 innings pitched. He batted and threw right-handed. Lowdermilk was born in Sandborn, Indiana, and died in Odin, Illinois, at the age of 83.
- 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
