Biography

Joseph Louis Benz (January 21, 1886 – April 22, 1957) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball from 1911 to 1919. He played for the Chicago White Sox. Benz's two main pitches were the spitball and the knuckleball. Benz pitched a no-hitter on May 13, 1914 for the White Sox against the Cleveland Naps. He was a member of the Sox teams that reached the World Series in both 1917 and 1919, but appeared in neither. Benz had a 7-3 record during the 1917 season and was 8-8 a year later, throwing 10 complete games. But he pitched in just one game during the 1919 season, and was not on the roster for the 1919 World Series, which was tainted by the Black Sox Scandal.
