Charles Devens (January 1, 1910 in Babe Ruth's Called Shot
Signed in 1932 and leaving the team in 1934, Devens' Major league career was cut short by his future father-in-law who refused to have a ball player as a son in law. After his departure from the big leagues Devens established his reputation as a standout businessman in Boston. Given his short 3-year career Charlie Devens was only able to amass 82 innings pitched with only one start in 1934. At the conclusion of his career, Charlie held a 5 and 3 record with 31 strikeouts and a 3.73 ERA.
His granddaughter was Sarah Devens. She participated on three varsity teams at Dartmouth College: field hockey, ice hockey and lacrosse. She was named a captain of all three teams and was considered by many teammates to be the best female athlete Dartmouth ever had.
