In the 1906 World Series (ultimately won in six games by the Chicago White Sox), Reulbach shone in Game 2 at South Side Park, giving up only one hit, a seventh-inning single to George Rohe. This rare World Series low-hit game (there have only been 5 in the 100-plus years of the Series) was matched by fellow Cubs star Claude Passeau in 1945 when he threw just the second one-hitter in Series history.
He pitched two shutouts in one day against the Brooklyn Dodgers on September 26, 1908. No other pitcher has ever accomplished this feat in the major leagues.
In a 1976 Esquire magazine article, sportswriter Harry Stein published an "All Time All-Star Argument Starter," consisting of five ethnic baseball teams. Reulbach was the right-handed pitcher on Stein's Jewish team, though Reulbach was, in fact, Roman Catholic and is buried in Montclair, New Jersey's Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Cemetery.
Reulbach played college baseball at the University of Notre Dame in 1903 and 1904.
