History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1889 White Stockings had a notable outfield of Jimmy Ryan, George Van Haltren, and Hugh Duffy. Duffy is in the Hall of Fame, and while Ryan and Van Haltren are not, there are decent arguments why they should be.

The 1889 National League, however, was dominated by the New York Giants, who had a ton of Hall of Famers on the team along with some other top players.
