Reilly was among the top ten of the all-time home run list from 1888 to 1892, but was never higher than seventh.

His career highs in a season were 135 games played, 553 at bats, 112 runs, 170 hits, 35 doubles, 26 triples, 13 HR, 103 RBI, 82 stolen bases, 34 walks, a .339 average, a .366 on-base percentage, a .551 slugging percentage, and 264 total bases.

He was also the first of four players to hit for the cycle on three occasions during his career (twice in the American Association, once in the National League). He accomplished the feat twice in 1883 (the first on September 12 and the second exactly one week later on September 19, tied for the fastest that any player with multiple cycles accomplished the feat). His third cycle came on August 6, 1890.

He was inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame on June 23, 2012.[1]
