    George Hall

    George Hall from the Chronology

    Oct 26, 1877 - Louisville club vice president Charles Chase confronts George Hall‚ the HR leader in '76 with 5‚ and Jim Devlin with charges that they threw road games in August and September. Both admit to throwing non-league games (an exhibition game in Lowell‚ MA August 30 and another in Pittsburgh September 3) and implicate teammates Al Nichols and Bill Craver. Hall implicates Devlin saying that the 2 helped in losses to the NL Cincinnati Reds on September 6 and to the minor league Indianapolis Blues on September 24‚ but he argues that since the Reds were about to be suspended and the games nullified‚ it amounted to an exhibition game.

    Sep 5, 1877 - Louisville's Jim Devlin and George Hall agree to throw their next game in Cincinnati for $25 apiece. If true‚ they cut it pretty fine‚ losing 1-0.

    Apr 7, 1877 - George Hall‚ who led the NL in home runs last year with 5‚ hits a homer in his first spring at-bat for Louisville‚ as the Grays begin training with a practice game against local amateurs. Hall will not hit any homers during the regular season.

    Jun 17, 1876 - George Hall and Ezra Sutton again gang up on the hapless Reds. Hall hits 2 HRs‚ a triple‚ and 2 singles‚ and Sutton also collects 5 hits in a 23-15 slaughter. Only 39 HRs will be hit in the NL season; Hall will lead with 5‚ and next year have zero.

    Jun 14, 1876 - George Hall of the Athletics hits 3 triples and a HR in a 20-5 shellacking of Cincinnati. Teammate Ezra Sutton also hits 3 triples‚ the only time 2 players have done this in the same game.

    Jun 26, 1875 - In torrid heat in Philadelphia‚ the Athletics hand the Boston Reds a 10-1 defeat in front of a crowd of 5‚000. George Hall has a HR and a triple.

    Jun 11, 1875 - George Hall of the Athletics hits 2 consecutive homers as Philadelphia trounces visiting Washington‚ 21-4.

    Oct 9, 1873 - Davy Force and George Hall each have 6 hits and score 5 runs as the Lord Baltimores humble the host Atlantics‚ 29-4. The Lords have 32 hits.

    Jul 7, 1871 - The Olympics of Washington‚ at home‚ score 18 runs in the 6th and defeat Ft. Wayne‚ 32-12. Four players go to bat three times in the big inning-John Glenn‚ Andy Leonard‚ Asa Brainard and George Hall. Leonard scores 3 times.

    Mar 26, 1870 - The first game of the season is played in Brooklyn at the old Star Grounds in Carroll Park. The amateur Star Club plays a practice game against a hand picked nine‚ including such renowned stars as Lipman Pike‚ Flanley‚ and George Hall. Candy Cummings pitches the Stars to a 5-inning‚ 19-7.
