Biographical Information[edit]

"Charles Bohn, pitcher of the Mansfield Club, of the Ohio State League, gave a wonderful performance in the box against the Cantons on August 22. Not a semblance of a base hit was made by the Cantons . . . Only twenty-seven batsmen faced Bohn in the nine innings, and nine were struck out by his remarkable work." - Sporting Life, August 31, 1887

Charlie Bohn pitched two games for the 1882 Louisville Eclipse, winning one of them. He also played a couple other games in the outfield. In the minors, his career stretched at least from 1879-1891 and possibly beyond. For reasons unknown, Charlie was dubbed "Silence and Fun" by a teammate in 1890.
