Harold Falor

At age 15 Falor amazed horseshoe pitchers everywhere by winning the national championship, the youngest player ever to do so. That was in 1923 at St. Petersburg, Fla. Where, among others, Falor defeated fellow Akronite George May, 1920 and 1922 titlist. Using the horseshoe grip originated by May, Akron pitchers monopolized national tournaments for a decade.
