Biographical Information[edit]

Charlie Hamburg played nearly 20 years in the minors and came to the majors for one season as a regular for the 1890 Louisville Colonels who won the pennant.

Hamburg, in his one major league season, appeared in almost all of the team's games, and hit .272 for a team which hit .279. However, he had an ability to draw walks, leading the team with 69 of them and so his OBP was much above the team average OBP. His 46 stolen bases were second-best on the team.

In 1900, he managed Oswego in the New York State League.

He makes the "All-Food" team along with players such as Sam Rice, Clarence Beers, Soup Campbell, Bobby Wine and Sugar Cain.
