Career highlights and awards

Charles Columbus "Count" Campau (October 17, 1863 – April 3, 1938) was an American Major League Baseball player from Detroit, Michigan. After attending the University of Notre Dame, he played parts of three seasons in the major leagues.[1]


He played for the Detroit Wolverines in 1888, and played in 70 games. He batted only .203, but did steal 27 bases. The next time Campau appeared in the Majors was in 1890 when he played 75 games for the St. Louis Browns. He had a great season that included a .322 batting average, 12 triples, and an American Association leading nine home runs. During that season, he was named player-manager for 42 games. Although he had a record of 27-14, this was only stint as manager in the Majors. That same season, he also set a still-standing Major League record when he had 15 consecutive multi-hit games in July. This was his only season with the Browns, and he didn't return to Majors again until 1894, when he appeared in two games for the Washington Senators.[1]


He did play for other professional teams such as the New Orleans Pelicans and Minneapolis Millers, where he was considered the star of those teams.[2] Count died at the age of 74 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and was interred at Metairie Cemetery.[1]
