Major League Baseball Player. The switch-hitting first baseman played 12 years in the big leagues with the Boston Beaneaters (1896), the Baltimore Orioles (1898), the Brooklyn Superbas and Washington Senators (1899), the St. Louis Cardinals (1900-01), the Orioles (1902), the New York Giants (1902-07) and the Boston Doves (1908). On May 27, 1904, he became the first modern player to steal five bases in a game (since broken by Otis Nixon) in a 3-1 victory over Brooklyn. That year he had a career-high 42 steals. He batted .235 in the 1905 World Series as the Giants beat the Philadelphia Athletics in five games. He was traded with shortstop Bill Dahlen, catcher Frank Bowerman, outfielder George Browne and pitcher Cecil Ferguson on Dec. 13, 1907 to the Doves for shortstop Al Bridwell, first baseman Fred Tenney and catcher Tom Needham. His 12-year career totals showed a .285 batting average, 1,490 hits, 180 doubles, 101 triples and 282 stolen bases. He shot himself to death in a Louisville hotel. (bio by: Ron Coons)
