Kisinger (December 13, 1876 - July 17, 1941) was a right-handed
pitcher in Major League Baseball. Born in Adrian, Michigan,
Kisinger played baseball at his hometown Adrian College before
signing with the Detroit Tigers. He debuted with the Tigers at the
end of the 1902 season on September 10, 1902. As a 25-year-old
rookie, Kisinger played in five games (all complete games) and had
a record of 2-3 with an ERA of 3.12 (Adjusted ERA+ of 120). In
1903, he appeared in 16 games (including 14 complete games) and had
a record of 7-9 with an ERA of 2.96 in 118-2/3 innings pitched.
Kisinger played in his last major league game on September 24,
1903. In October 1903, Kisinger was traded by the Tigers with other
players to the Buffalo Bisons of the Eastern League for Cy Ferry
and Matty McIntyre. According to one history of the Bisons,
Kissinger led the Bisons to their first pennant in 1904, described
by the author as "a part-time surveyor and coin collector who
managed to win 24 games in the betweens." Kisinger also made his
only appearance on a baseball card (a T206 baseball card) while
playing for Buffalo. He died at age 64 in a train accident in
Huron, Ohio while acting as a railroad engineer.
