Baseball career

Walberg was born in Pine City, Minnesota. A consistent and durable pitcher, Walberg averaged 16 wins for the Philadelphia Athletics of Connie Mack from 1926 to 1932, with career-highs of 20 wins in 1931. He also had a 1–1 mark with a 1.93 ERA for the Athletics in five World Series appearances. A good-hitting pitcher, Walberg collected a .179 batting average with four home runs and 84 runs batted in. When Mack dismantled the Athletics in 1933, he was sent along with Lefty Grove and Max Bishop to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for two players and $150.000. He was a spot starter and reliever with Boston during three seasons and pitched his last game at the age of 41.

In a fifteen-season major league career, Walberg posted a 155–141 record with 1085 strikeouts and a 4.16 ERA in 2,644 innings, including 15 shutouts and 140 complete games.

Walberg surrendered 17 home runs to Babe Ruth, more than any other pitcher.[citation needed]

Walberg died in Tempe, Arizona at age 82. In 2002, he was inducted into the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame.
