Philadelphia Keystones

The Philadelphia Keystones (aka Keystones of Philadelphia) were a professional baseball franchise. In 1884, they were a member of the short-lived Union Association. The team was owned by former player Tom Pratt.[1]

The Keystones were managed by catcher Fergy Malone and finished eighth in the league with a 21-46 record. Their top-hitting regular was left fielder/infielder Buster Hoover, who batted .364 with a slugging percentage of .495, and their best pitcher was Jersey Bakely, who was 14-25 with an ERA of 4.47. Their home games were played at Keystone Park. Jack Clements, who played for 17 seasons and was the last (and virtually the only) left-handed catcher in major-league history, made his big-league debut with the Keystones.

Like several other teams in the Union Association, the Keystones did not make it through the entire season, folding after the game of August 7. The entire league ceased operations after 1884, its first and only season.
