Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alonzo P. "Lon" Knight, born Alonzo P. Letti (June 16, 1853 - April 23, 1932), was an American right fielder, right-handed pitcher and manager in Major League Baseball. He threw the first pitch in the first game played in the new National League on April 22, 1876. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a graduate of Girard College, he began playing with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1875 when the team was in the National Association, then stayed with them when they joined the National League in 1876. When the team folded after the 1876 season, he did not play in the major leagues again until 1880, when he joined the Worcester Ruby Legs of the NL for one season, and the Detroit Wolverines for two.
