Morgan Gardner Bulkeley
Birth: Dec. 26, 1837
Death: Nov. 6, 1922

Baseball Hall of Fame Figure, Politician. Born Morgan Gardner Bulkeley in East Haddam, Connecticut, in the early days of professional baseball, he formed the Hartford Dark Blues of the National Association in 1874. In 1876, the NAPBBP was replaced by the National League and Bulkeley was named the new league's first president. While in office, he enhanced Baseball's image by reducing illegal gambling, drinking and fan rowdiness. In 1880, he was elected as a Republican the Mayor of Hartford Connecticut and served two terms. He also served as the Republican Governor of Connecticut, 1889 to 1893 and as a US Senator from Connecticut, 1905 to 1911. In the second year of voting, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
