Birth: Aug. 20, 1863

Death: Jun. 12, 1900

Major League Baseball Player. Over an eight year span, he played five seasons for five different teams. Playing for the Cincinnati Outlaw Reds (1894), Detroit Wolverines (1895), Kansas City Cowboys (1896), Syracuse Stars (1890) and Washington Statesmen (1891), he amassed a career .271 batting average with 160 RBI and 13 home runs. On August 28, 1885 he “hit for the cycle” against the Providence Grays. After retiring from baseball, he returned to his native Kentucky where he became a police officer for the city of Covington. On June 8, 1900 he approached two assailants on a horse drawn streetcar, trying to flee the city after killing a drifter. The former baseball player was shot and died from his wounds three days later.  (bio by: Bigwoo)
