David Elwood "Dave" Rowe (October 9, 1854 – December 9, 1930) was an American Major League Baseball center fielder and manager from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His brother, Jack Rowe also played and managed in the Major leagues.[1] Over the course of Rowe's career, he had 383 hits and a .263 batting average. He appeared in four games as a pitcher during his career, and in a game on July 24, 1882, Rowe allowed 35 runs to score, although only 12 of them were earned; it remains the record for most runs scored against a pitcher in major league history.[2]
