|Career highlights and awards|
John Charles Lush (October 8, 1885 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania - November 18, 1946 in Beverly Hills, California), was a professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1904 to 1910. He played for the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies.
On May 1, 1906, while with the Phillies, the 20-year-old Lush no-hit the Brooklyn Superbas 6-0 at Brooklyn's Washington Park, besting Mal Eason--himself a no-hit pitcher on July 20 of that season. Not until Jim Bunning's perfect game in 1964 would there be another no-hitter by a Phillies pitcher.
Lush was a good hitting pitcher in his seven-year major league career. He posted a .254 batting average (252-for-993) with 107 runs, 40 doubles, 11 triples, 2 home runs, 94 RBI, 28 stolen bases and drawing 69 bases on balls. He was also used at first base and in the outfield.
