Ned Williamson Baseball Card
Baseball history photo: Ned Williamson baseball card circa 1887. Many historians unfairly fail to recognize the 27 home runs, 25 at home in Lake Front Park (II) in Chicago, Williamson hit in 1884 because he took advantage of the 190 foot right field fence. His record stood for 35 years until Babe Ruth hit 29 in 1919. Click photo to return to previous page.
