Allen Sutton Sothoron (April 27, 1893 - June 17, 1939) was a spitball pitcher who spent eleven years in the major leagues, playing for the St. Louis Browns, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, and the St. Louis Cardinals. His best season came in 1919, where he went 20-13 with a 2.20 ERA. After the spitball was outlawed, he was one of the few pitchers allowed to use the banned pitch. He was never able to match those numbers, and quickly after being released by the Browns, he was out of baseball. He was an assistant coach with the Browns, with a brief, eight-game managerial stint after the dismissal of Bill Killefer. He was replaced with hometown favorite Rogers Hornsby.
