Hugh Duffy

Hugh Duffy (November 26, 1866 - October 19, 1954) was a 19th century Major League Baseball player.

Duffy entered the National League with the Chicago White Stockings in 1888 and shortly thereafter earned the reputation of an outstanding outfielder and powerful hitter. He switched leagues, joining the American Association's Boston Reds in 1891; he then returned to the NL with the Boston Beaneaters in 1892, where he enjoyed his best seasons. Playing in Boston from 1891 until 1900, Duffy knocked in 100 runs or more 8 times. In 1894 Duffy had one of the greatest seasons in baseball's early history, leading the league with 18 home runs, with 145 RBI and a .438 batting average (see Triple crown).

Duffy finished his career in 1906 with 106 home runs which was, at the time, one of the highest career totals ever.

Duffy was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945.
