Major League Baseball Umpire, Executive. From 1888 to 1902, he was a National League umpire, working 1,325 games in his 13 year career. He was a major factor in increasing the prestige of umpires, and was one of the first to be used on an every game basis. Later, he served as the President of the National League from 1910 to 1913, before being replaced by John K. Tener. He was one of the 11 umpires named by the National Baseball Hall of Fame's Honor Rolls of Baseball in 1946, at a time when umpires were not eligible for the Hall of Fame. (bio by: Adam Penale)
