Long before Patsy Cline put Winchester on the map this man was tearing up some baseball. Spottswood Poles at one time was considered one of the fastest men in baseball! Spot Poles as he was known started his career with Harrisburg back in 1906. Played for New York Giants from 1911-1914 averaging .440, .398,.414 and .487! Why is this man not in the Baseball Hall Of Fame? He also joined the army to serve in World War One earning five Battle Stars and a Purple Heart! After that he came back to baseball and hit .610! That's Incredible! After baseball in 1923 he ended up driving a cab in Pennsylvania. Well he is getting some recognition here in his hometown of Winchester by getting a drive named after him.
