Hick Carpenter from the Chronology
Jul 1, 1884 - At Cincinnati Hick Carpenter has 5 hits including 4 long hits (2 homers 2 doubles) to lead the Reds to a 16-5 win over Washington.
Aug 7, 1879 - An unusual base-path occurrence is the feature in Syracuse. The Star runner from 2B Mike Dorgan passes the man from 3B Hick Carpenter and crosses the plate before Carpenter is tagged out. There is as yet no specific rule about passing preceding runners but the umpire calls both men out. The Stars beat Boston 6-5.
