1897 Spalding Baseball Guide

Bill Lange, an outfielder from San Francisco, was born 150 years ago today, on 06-June-1871. For some reason, his nickname was Little Eva. He played his whole major league career with the Chicago National League club, which went through several names before it became the Cubs. Lange retired at 29 after the 1899 season and went into business in San Francisco. His nephew Highpockets Kelly played for the New York Giants.
