Eddie Grant


John J. McGraw says: A type of the college player, quick to learn, was Eddie Grant, who was killed in action in France. After leaving Harvard Eddie was on the Philadelphia National League Club. Having heard much of Mathew son, he was very curious to bat against him. Finally his chance came. On his first time up Matty put one right in the groove and Grant smacked it for a single. Five times in succession he faced Matty that first day and established the remarkable record of getting five straight hits. “Do you know that’s Mathewson you’re hitting?” Billy Murray asked him. “Yes,” he said, “but I don’t suppose he knows this is me.”
