James H. "Jim" Manning
Birth: Jan. 31, 1862

Death: Oct. 22, 1929

Major League Baseball Player, Manager. Played Major League baseball as an outfielder for five seasons (1884 to 1887, 1889) for the Boston Beaneaters (now the Atlanta Braves) and Detroit Wolverines of the early days of the National League, and the Kansas City Blues of the American Assocation League. He debuted for Boston in May 1884, and played fairly well with the team, hitting .241 in 89 games. After playing 84 games for Boston in the 1885 season, he was sent to the Wolverines. He played parts of the next two season for the team, getting into 26 games in 1886 and 13 games in 1887. Detroit released him after the 1888 season and he was out of baseball for a year (the Wolverines themselves folded after 1888). He caught on with Kansas City of the American Assocation League, where he found his only season as a full time starter. He played 132 games that year, splitting time between the outfield and catching. However, he batted only .204, and, when the Blues folded after the season, his Major League career was over. His totals were 364 Games Played, 303 Hits, 188 Runs, 8 Home Runs, 107 RBIS and a career .218 Batting Average. In 1901 the creation of the American League brought him back to the Major League level. When AL President Ban Johnson established a new team in Washington DC (then the Senators, now the Minnesota Twins), he brought over players he knew from the defunct Kansas City franchise (which he owned). Jim Manning was named as manager of the fledgling Senators. However, after they finished their first season with a 61 Win-72 Loss record, and were 20 1/2 games out of first, he was let go. In his later years he coached a number of semi-pro teams. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
