Pink Hawley was born on Thursday, December 5, 1872, in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Hawley was 19 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 13, 1892, with the St. Louis Browns.

"They called him (Pink Hawley) the Duke of Pittsburgh. They named a cigar after him. They rated him as one of the great pitchers of all time, a king of speed ball artists, a pitcher who could field and hit, a pitcher who would rather win a game than cash in on a $20,000 bit of dishonesty. And $20,000 then, as now, ain't marsh hay." - Milwaukee Sentinel Wire (09/20/1938, 'Pink Hawley, Great Mound Wizard of Yesteryear, Passes')

Did you know that Pink Hawley was once bribed to throw a game? The following excerpt appears in Hawley's obituary which was printed in the Milwaukee Sentinel on September 20, 1938:

Also, during his Pittsburgh career, came an event that shows Pink's love for the game above all else. A world famous ex-prize fight champion called Pink to his room one night and offered him $20,000 if he'd "throw" the next day's game, odds for which were 8 to 2 on the Pirates and Pink.

"Think it over, Pink," the gambler cautioned, "If you refuse you'll go back to your hotel room a $2,400 a year player."

"Yes, I'll go back in my room at $2,400 a year player," Pink interrupted, "but I'll be able to sleep tonight."

And that was the end of the bribe attempt.
