"The Big Train", as he was known, played for the Washington Senators for 21 years starting in 1907. He would eventually retire to a farm in Germantown, MD having won 416 games- an awesome achievement in any era. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1936 along with Mathewson, Ruth, Cobb and Wagner.
