1898 Atlanta Baseball Player

In 1898 Charles Duffer was Atlanta's Left Fielder. They won the game on May 19th, but it was neck-to-neck for many innings against the Alabama Club before they scored three runs and the crowd went wild. Charles E. Duffer was Atlanta's new left-fielder whose fielding average was 921 per cent and batting average 250 per cent. If any of you remember, the game was played on Ponce de Leon Avenue in Atlanta across from old Sears and Roebuck County. A stream used to run across the property until they build the wooden stands, etc.
