Eddie Plank's home is on Carlisle Street in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Hall of Fame pitcher retired to this home and lived here until his death. Plank was born in Gettysburg on August 31, 1875 in a farmhouse which stood off of Old Harrisburg Pike. The area is now occupied by a housing development with street names such as Double Play Drive, Line Drive and Home Run Circle in honor of it's former tenant. Plank joined the Philadelphia Athletics in 1901 and played with them until 1914, winning three World Series, in 1910, 1911 and 1913. He played for the St. Louis Terriers of the Federal League in 1915 and the St. Louis Browns in 1916-1917. Plank was the first left-handed pitcher to reach 200 wins, and the first to reach 300 wins. He still holds the record for most career shutouts by a left-hander with 66. He had 8 20-win seasons during his career and amassed a lifetime record of 326-194. After his retirement Plank moved back to Gettysburg where he opened a Buick dealership and garage, and gave tours of the battlefield. He passed away here, at his home, on February 24, 1926, after suffering a stroke. There is a state marker located across the street. Plank was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1946.
