Paul Hines Baseball Card
Baseball history photo: Center Fielder Paul Hines pictured on the Washington Nationals of the National League in 1887. In 1886, his first year on the club, he led the Nationals in every offensive category except triples, but the team finished eighth out of eight teams and 60 games out of first place. In 1887, he led the club in all but two offensive categories, triples and home runs and the club finished seventh out of eight and only 32 games out of first place. The Nationals home games were played at the Swampoodle Grounds in Washington DC, perhaps the best name of a ball field of all time. Click photo to return to previous page.
