Charles Albert “Chief” Bender (1884-1954) won 212 games for the Philadelphia Athletics and Phillies, Baltimore Terrapins of the Federal League and Chicago White Sox during his 16-year career (1903-1917, 1925). Bender is credited for developing the “nickel change”, or in modern turns, the slider. In 1910, Bender no-hit the Cleveland Naps using the slider, fastball, exceptional curve ball and overall command of the plate. Bender endured prejudice and discrimination through the duration of his career and is evidenced by the nickname “Chief” that to this day, he is almost exclusively referred to as. The Veterans Committee elected Charles Albert “Chief” Bender to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953.
