Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Jake Beckley was about the most popular player in Pittsburgh; He was a powerful hitter and had a strong, loyal following. I still recall persons hollering at me from Pittsburgh windows: 'Why did you trade Jake Beckley?'" - Connie Mack in Ghosts in the Gallery at Cooperstown: Sixteen Forgotten Members of the Hall of Fame (David L. Fleitz, McFarland Publishing, 01/05/2004, 'Jake Beckley', Page 157)

In 1883 Francis Richter founded the Sporting Life, a weekly magazine devoted to coverage of all sports, with an emphasis on baseball. In 1887 Richter, and other baseball journalists, formed the Base Ball Reporters Association of America, also referred to as the National Base Ball Reporters' Association. And in 1914 Richter wrote the History and Records of Baseball: the American Nation's Chief Sport (Philadelphia: Sporting Life Publishing Co., 1914). In that historic book Richter selected the greatest players in each position in each decade:
