Entertain me, I'm working.

Robert Duffy Schultz (November 27, 1923 – March 31, 1979) was an American professional baseball player. A left-handedpitcher, his career extended for 11 seasons (1946–1956), including a full season (1952) and parts of three others in Major League Baseball as a member of the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates and Detroit Tigers. Nicknamed "Bullet Bob," Schultz stood 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) tall and weighed 200 pounds (91 kg). The native of Louisville, Kentucky, served in the United States Army Air Forces during World War II.[1]

Schultz came to the Major Leagues at age 27 after posting seasons of 20, 16 and 25 victories in minor league baseball.[2] His 25-win season in 1950 was especially noteworthy as it came with the Nashville Vols of the Class AA Southern Association, who played their home games in a hitter's paradise called Sulphur Dell. Schultz lost only six decisions and finished second in the league in earned run average (2.68), just one one-hundredth of a point behind ERA champion Marv Rotblatt (2.67).[3] Schultz broke camp with the 1951 Cubs out of spring training and appeared in 17 games — ten as a starting pitcher — during the season's early months, but he was sent back to the minors after his last start July 13, when he was knocked out of the box after only one fullinning in a start against the Brooklyn Dodgers.[4]
