"The baseball world will perhaps never again see his equal. He never wore a glove and his hands were as small as a woman's, but he could handle any sort of throw or hit, running at the ball from either right or left and never halting at a bad throw or difficult ground hit. (Fred) Dunlap was ambidextrous. In covering second, he would run and catch a badly thrown ball as well with his left hand as with his right hand. Great as a fielder, he was even greater as a thrower. His aim was as accurate as the best rifle shot." - New York Post (December 3, 1902)

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:
