Happy Reds birthday, Rube Benton!

Benton

June 27, 1890

Rube Benton was probably not a pitcher that batters looked forward to facing. He twice led the National League in hit batsmen with 18 in 1912 and 19 in 1915. Benton played for Cincinnati from 1910 through 1915 and again from 1923 through 1925. He also pitched for the New York Giants.
