Adonis Terry

Handsome Adonis Terry brought more women to the ballpark than free admission on Ladies’ Day. He was usually a pitcher, a four-time 20-game winner who no-hit St. Louis in 1886 and Louisville in 1888 while pitching for Brooklyn (AA). He played other positions, including 216 games in the outfield, in one-third of his ML games. Regarded as a potent hitter, he often batted in other than the ninth spot, even when he was the pitcher.
