Harry Schafer from the Chronology
Sep 27, 1877 -
Boston clinches a tie for the NL pennant with a 13-2 win over Hartford. The NL's top hitter Jim White leads the offense with a 4-for-4 game. On defense Harry Schafer racks up 4 outfield assists the first player to do so and accepts 11 chances both ML records. As Cliff Blau points out there is some question about Harry's (and other 4-assist) mark: Schafer played in just 2 games in 1878 and the Macmillan Encyclopedia credits him with no OF assists.
