1883- FIRST, THE WORCESTER NO NAMES
But as bad as the 1882 No Names were, the new Philadelphia National League team, pawing the turf on opening day, May 1, 1883, at Recreation Park, on the corner of 24th street and Ridge Avenue in North Philadelphia, were worse.
1894- BILLY HAMILTON TEARS IT UP
The offensive numbers for the 1894 Phillies defy belief; Sam Thompson, Ed Delahanty, and Billy Hamilton, all hit over .400, as did spare outfielder Tuck Turner who hit .418 and scored 95 runs in 82 games.
