About the Player
Christopher "Christy" Mathewson (August 12, 1880 – October 7, 1925), nicknamed "Big Six", "The Christian Gentleman", or "Matty", was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball. He played in what is known as the dead ball era; and in 1936 was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

Mathewson's fame and success were particularly significant, as he was one of the first well-educated, middle-class star players that helped change baseball's image from slightly seedy working-class entertainment to America's national sport.

On July 20, 1916, Mathewson's career came full circle when he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds along with Edd Roush. He won one game with the Reds and served as their manager for the next three seasons.

Mathewson and Brown wrapped their respective careers by squaring off on September 4, 1916. The game was billed as the final meeting between the two old baseball warriors. The high-scoring game was a win for Mathewson's Reds over Brown's Cubs.
