Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Phillips Jenkins "Count" Sensenderfer (December 28, 1847 - May 3, 1903) was a professional baseball player who played for the Philadelphia Athletics from 1866-1874. Sensenderfer joined the Athletic club at the age of eighteen in 1866, and "The Count" (he got the nickname from his moustache and aristocratic air) quickly became of the top players in the country. Originally playing second base before moving to center field, Count was one of the first players to score two hundred runs in a season, for the championship Philadelphia team of 1868. The following year, Athletic turned professional; in 1871 the club helped form the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players, baseball's first all-professional league.show more
