Epic Fails: The 25 Worst Single-Game Performances in Sports History

10. "Grand Opening, Grand Closing"

PLAYER: Allan Travers, Detroit Tigers
DATE: 5/18/1912
COMPLEX SAYS: In 1912, the Detroit Tigers players went on strike to protest their teammate Ty Cobb's indefinite suspension for beating a handicapped heckler (WTF?). As a result, the team's owner was forced to find replacement players, one of which was Allan Travers. In his one-game MLB appearance Travers pitched and  allowed 26 hits, 24 runs, and an MLB-record 14 earned runs in a complete game. Travers later went on to become an ordained Catholic priest. He's the only priest to ever play in the MLB. Thank you, BasedGod!
