Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lewis Pessano Dickerson (October 11, 1858 - July 23, 1920) was a 19th century major league baseball outfielder. Born in Tyaskin, Maryland, he played a total of seven seasons in the majors, splitting time between eight teams in three different leagues. He is credited as becoming the first Italian-American to play in the majors. Dickerson began his career with the Cincinnati Reds in 1878 at the age of 19, and played 29 games in the outfield, but did not find himself a regular starting position until the following year. In 1879, he took over the regular left field job replacing Charley Jones, who had departed for the Boston Red Caps.show more
