    Harry Schafer

    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.
