Bender is credited for developing the nickel change, or in modern turns, the slider. In 1910, Bender no-hit the Cleveland Naps using the slider, fastball, exceptional curve ball and overall command of the plate.

Bender endured prejudice and discrimination through the duration of his career and is evidenced by the nickname Chief that to this day, he is almost exclusively referred to as. The Veterans Committee elected Charles Albert Chief Bender to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953. Oldrings playing days started in the minor league as part of the Southern Association before joining the Athletics as their everyday outfielder and taking two World Series titles (1911, 1913) with the club in three tries. Rube also led the American League in field percentage in 1910. During the 1913 campaign, he recorded career highs in a variety of categories including runs (101), RBIs (71), and stolen bases (40). Rube retired with career statistics that included a. 270 batting average, 27 career home runs, 471 RBIs, and 197 stolen bases.
