August "Gus" Weyhing (September 29, 1866 – September 4, 1955) was a pitcher for nine professional baseball teams in a career that spanned 14 years from 1887 to 1901. He was small for a pitcher by today's standards, listed at 5 feet 10 inches tall and between 120 and 145 pounds. He enjoyed quite a bit of success, winning 25 games or more for six years in a row, capped by a 32 win season in 1892 for the Philadelphia Phillies. He completed 46 of his 49 starts that year, hurled six shutouts, and logged 4692⁄3 innings pitched. He collected 216 wins in his first eight professional seasons. Weyhing was nicknamed "Cannonball", "Rubber Arm", and "Rubber-Winged Gus". Weyhing was known to be a poor hitter and suspect fielder. He holds the dubious honor of having hit the most batters in a career (277).
