Jerry Denny

Denny set ML career records for third basemen that still stand: 4.2 total chances per game and 1.6 putouts per game. Though he also holds the NL career record for errors at third base (553), for five seasons he ranked first or second in fielding average. On October 24, 1884 Denny hit the only home run in the first post-season series (a forerunner of the World Series) to defeat the New York Metropolitans and win the game and the Series for the Providence Grays.
