Cy Falkenberg is born in Chicago, Illinois.
Falkenberg spent 12 years in the Majors, including five in Cleveland with the Naps from 1908 to 1913. The 6’5” right-hander was primarily a starter with moderate success, but after a return to the minors in 1912, where he was 25-8 with Toledo, he returned to Cleveland and won 23 games in 1913. Following the season, he jumped into play with the Federal League in 1914 and won 25 games for the Indianapolis Hoosiers.
