Professional Baseball Player. John Anthony Boyle, known as "Jack" and "Honest Jack", was a Major League Baseball player for thirteen seasons. He made his debut on October 8, 1886 when he was 20 years old. He was a star catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1890's and played on pennant winning teams for Charles Comiskey with the St. Louis Browns in 1887 and 1888. He came up with the Cincinnati Red Stockings and also played for the New York Giants and the Chicago Pirates. Jack had several notable moments during his career which includes receiving the largest salary ever paid to a player up until then for $5500 in 1892 with the Giants. He was involved in the first baseball trade ever made in 1886 when Cincinnati traded him to St. Louis along with $350 in cash for Hugh Nicol. He led the National League with 565 plate appearances in 1895 and batted an even .300 in 40 at-bats throughout 10 World Series games. He hit an inside the park homerun in 1887 and once assisted in a rare triple play. He also became the first Philly to record six hits in a nine inning game in 1893. He played in a total of 1086 games, clubbed 23 homeruns, racked up 569 runs batted in, and held a .256 lifetime batting average. He stopped playing after the 1898 season and went on to operate a successful saloon in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio on 7th Street. His brother, Eddie, also played in the Majors.  (bio by: K Guy)
