 Remembering History
*sponsored by the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society, the St. Louis Browns Historical Society,
& Play it Again Sports

As a companion piece to Romano's Bullpen, Marie Smith will give us info on players from some of our teams of the 1900's and 1950's as well as stadiums and baseball events of the eras.  Check in twice each week, learn and remember, and if you are picked out at the park and answer correctly you may win a nice prize.  

Hugh Duffy

Playing from 1888 to 1906, Duffy was an outfielder with a number of teams during his career.  In 1894 he hit .438 with the National league's Boston Beaneaters, the highest batting average by any player in Major league history.  Later he would be a member of the one year Milwaukee Brewers franchise of the American league in 1901.  He led the NL in home runs from 1894 to 1897.  He also served as a player-manager and manager later in his career.  Duffy was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1945.

How it works: About twice each week info will be posted on a player, a ballpark, or an event.  Players will be randomly asked a question on the page at the park and if they answer correctly they win a small prize (giftcards, old baseball cards, etc.)

So stay up on your history.
