Falconer's Hugh Bedient pitched for the Boston Red Sox from 1912-14 and compiled a 58-53 record with a 3.08 ERA. His rookie year of 1912 was Bedient's best when he compiled an 20-9 record and 2.92 ERA. That same season he faced Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants in the third game of the World Series and defeated him 3-2 on a three-hitter. He also faced Mathewson in the seventh game and was taken out after seven innings with the score tied 1-1. Boston went on to win the game in 10 innings 3-2.

He spent the 1914-15 seasons with Buffalo of the Federal League and finished his career with Toledo of the International League. The New York Yankees offered him a contract for the 1918 season, but Bedient was drafted and after World War I his career was over.
