Frank Breyfogle LaPorte (1880-1939) was an infielder for the Highlanders, Red Sox, Browns and Senators before ending his career in the ill-fated Federal League. His best year in the AL was 1911 when he hit a career-high .314. LaPorte struggled with a reputation for uninspired play and was bounced from club to club before trying the new “outlaw” Federal League.

  • In 1912, led by Walter Johnson, was one of several players who saved many from a Detroit hotel fire
