He returns (1877)

He was one of the “four Seceders” and a man I want to meet in heaven.

“Deacon” Jim White returned in 1877. Just couldn’t stay away from a winning team I am betting. He nearly won the triple crown. He led the leauge in batting at .387 and RBIs with 49. His two (yes that is 2) home runs were two short of the leader who had four. Imagine that today.
