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.[1]

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.
