Jim Creighton
James Creighton, Jr. (April 15, 1841 – October 18, 1862) was an American baseball player during the game's amateur era, and is considered by historians to be its first superstar.

During his era, a pitcher was required to deliver the ball in an underhand motion with a stiff arm/stiff wrist movement.
