Who was Rube Ehrhardt?

Welton Claude Ehrhardt was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He pitched from 1924 to 1929 with the Brooklyn Robins and Cincinnati Reds.

A tall right-hander, Ehrhardt's career was delayed while he served in the Navy in World War I, so that he was nearly 30 by the time he made his Major League debut. In the final start of his career, Ehrhardt pitched a 7-hit shutout to defeat the Chicago Cubs. He reportedly worked in a Chicago Heights steel mill for 20 years following his retirement from baseball.
