Card #28 - Lou Fiene
Lou was drafted by the White Sox in 1904. He bragged about mastering the spitball pitch in the spring of 1906, shortly before he made his White Sox debut on May 7, 1906.
Fiene appeared in 26 games with the Pale Hose between 1906 and 1909. Although the 1906 team did win the World Series, Lou was not on the big league roster at the time. In his four Major League seasons, Fiene compiled a 3-8 record with a 3.85 ERA. His last MLB appearance was on August 15, 1909.
Big Finn had most of his success in the minors, where he went 73-59 over nine seasons. Lou hurt his arm during the 1911 season, but bounced back by transforming himself into a utility player. Fiene hung on in the minors until 1915.
