Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Possibly no more brilliant outfielder ever graced the profession than 'Jimmie' Fogarty. . . . He had wonderful judgment of a fly ball, and local patrons will recall his brilliant running catches. He robbed [ Jake ] Beckley of a triple at Player's Park last season by taking the ball off the fence. He was a dashing base runner, fair batsman and excellent thrower." - The Pittsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph (May 1891)

The San Francisco Call (08/11/1907, WHERE ARE OUR OLD BASEBALL HEROES , Page 11), wrote, "Jimmy Fogarty, the idol of Philadelphia and one of the first really good men in sliding to bases, was too frail of physique to stand the strain of a severe athletic career and is in his grave, one of the few ballplayers to die of consumption [TB]."

"One of the really good men in sliding to bases" - how good? In 1887, he stole 102 bases, yet finished second ( Top 25 ) in the senior circuit. Do you know who swiped 111 bags that year? [ Answer ]

Two years later, Jimmy "only" stole 99 bases, but finished first overall ( Top 25 ),well ahead of King Kelly . [ Stolen Base Champions ]

Jim Fogarty averaged 23 doubles, 11 triples, 66 RBI, 104 runs scored, 72 walks, 92 stolen bases, and 38 outfield assists per 154 games played! Primarily a right fielder (0 LF / 312 CF / 373 RF), Fogarty gunned down 171 baserunners during his seven-year career—this despite playing only 685 games in the outfield!
