Kid Nichols of the Philadelphia Phillies at the West Side Grounds in 1905.
Charles Augustus Nichols (September 14, 1869 - April 11, 1953), better known as Kid Nichols, was a Major League Baseball pitcher at the turn of the 20th century. Admired for his steadfast consistency year-in and year-out, Nichols amassed 361 wins over his 15 year career, the 7th highest total in major league history.
Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Nichols entered the major leagues in 1890 with the Boston Beaneaters and was an instant success. Nichols went 27-19 with a 2.23 ERA and 222 strikeouts and began a string of ten consecutive seasons with 20 wins or more. Nichols also had a major league record seven 30 win seasons in this time (1891 - 1894, 1896 - 1898) and a career high of 35 in 1892.
Nichols suffered his first losing season in 1900 when he went 13-16 but improved to 19-16 the following year. After a two year hiatus from the sport, Nichols returned to the 20 win plateau for the eleventh and final time in his career in 1904 for a new team, the St. Louis Cardinals. He finished his career in 1906 with the Philadelphia Phillies, who picked him up off waivers in 1905. Nichols retired with 361 wins, 208 losses, 1868 strikeouts and a 2.95 ERA. He was a part of five National League championship teams, all with the Boston Beaneaters (1891 - 1893, 1897, 1898). His 361 victories ranks 7th all-time, and his 5056 1/3 innings pitched ranks 11th all-time.
Nichols was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.
