George Louis Wheeler (born George L. Heroux on August 3, 1869 in Methuen, Massachusetts; died March 23, 1946 in Santa Ana, California), was a professional baseball pitcher. He played all or part of four seasons in Major League Baseball from 1896 to 1899 for the Philadelphia Phillies. Wheeler, primarily a right-handed pitcher, threw left-handed on a handful of occasions[1] to become one of the few known "switch pitchers" in MLB history.
