John B. Vaughan

PERC MCKINSTRY AND JOHN B. VAUGHAN
These two adversaries were considered two of the finest pitchers to play sandlot baseball in Akron during the 1920's. The two pitchers hooked up in one of the Akron area's classic duels on August 20, 1922. With Perc, a southpaw, on the Firestone squad and "Jimmy" Vaughan hurling for General Tire, the two battled for 20 innings to a scoreless tie. McKinstry struck out 33 batters and allowed only 5 hits, while Vaughan fanned 24 and allowed but 7 hits.
