Biographical Information[edit]

George Dumont had a strong start to his major league career in 1915 with the Washington Senators, posting a 2.03 ERA at age 19. His ERA in 1916 was slightly below average, but in 1917, when he got most of his major league work, it was again better than average. He finished up his major league time with the Boston Red Sox in 1919, in Babe Ruth's last year with the team. One of Dumont's teammates on the Senators was none other than Walter Johnson.

His nickname "Pea Soup" is a disparaging name often saddled on French Canadians; he came from a Canadian family who had emigrated to Minnesota and whose primary language was French.
