Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert Gilman Allen (July 10, 1867 - May 14, 1943) was a shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies, the Boston Beaneaters, and the Cincinnati Reds, as well as a manager for two brief stints with both the Phillies and the Reds. He was born in Marion, OH, and as a youth, he played baseball with future president Warren G. Harding. He made his NL debut in 1890 with the Phillies, and in his day he was considered a power hitter, hitting a career high 8 HR in 1893. When his contract was up, he took a three-year hiatus from baseball, but he later joined the Beaneaters.
