Frank Dillon

On opening day of the AL’s first season (4/25/01), Dillon led the Tigers to their first victory by becoming the first AL batter to hit four doubles in one game. Early in the 1902 season, he was sent to Los Angeles of the Pacific Coast League, where he became a hitting star. The adept hit-and-run man was captain of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1904, then returned to Los Angeles to become player-manager for 11 seasons. In 2,175 minor league games, he averaged .295.
