William Henry Holbert (March 14, 1855 in Baltimore, Maryland - March 20, 1935 in Laurel, Maryland) was a catcher in the National League and American Association baseball leagues, playing from 1876 through 1888. He holds the major league record for career at-bats without a home run, failing to do so in his 2335 at-bats. However, he was playing in an era when triples were more common than home runs, due to the spacious parks and poor quality of the balls used. Bill Holbert started his career with the nascent Louisville Grays of 1876. He sat out the 1877 year and in 1878 played for the Milwaukee Grays, followed by Syracuse Stars and the Troy Trojans, both in 1879. Holbert is also credited with managing one game, a loss, in 1879 while with the Syracuse Stars.
