  • City: Cincinnati
  • Team: Reds (NL)
  • League: National League

Samuel Wright Jr. (1848-1928) has two brothers in the Hall of Fame: Harry and George. Alas, Sam’s .168 BA in 45 games over 4 seasons did not qualify him. Sam broke in with the New Haven Elm Citys of the NAPBP, considered by some a major league. Their 7-40 record led to their demise after one year.

  • The Wright brothers’ father Sam was a prominent cricketer
  • In Sam’s debut, he got a hit against brother Harry’s Red Stockings before being shellacked
