Player Biography
Mike “King” Kelly was the game’s number-one drawing card in the 1880s. A daring baserunner who inspired the immortal cry of “Slide, Kelly, Slide,” the “King of Baseball” played on eight pennant-winning clubs in his 16-year career. Kelly was eulogized by his former boss James A. Hart: “The easiest man imaginable to manage as to the ordinary laws of baseball and the hardest to discipline.” His $10,000 sale to the Boston Beaneaters in 1887 was baseball’s first “big money” deal.
