Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Francis Coleman (March 6, 1863, Saratoga Springs, New York - May 31, 1922, Detroit, Michigan) was an American professional baseball player. From 1883 through 1890, Coleman played for the Philadelphia Quakers (now the Phillies), the Pittsburgh Alleghenys (now the Pirates), and the now-defunct Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association. Remarkably, in his rookie season, he pitched in 65 games, but accumulated a record of only 12-48 (the team's season record was 17-81, with its batting average of only .240, lowest in the league). He appeared in another 32 games as an outfielder and second baseman. As of 2010, his 48 losses, 772 hits given up, 510 runs allowed, and 291 earned runs allowed over that 98-game season remain single-season major-league records.show more
