    April 3, 1904 Philadelphia Inquirer

    The sports section of the Inquirer included photos of a number of players new to the Phillies; for many of these players, a picture in a Philadelphia uniform has been difficult to find. Information about the players is below the clipping...

    1904 NL Phillies new players.jpg

    Bill Marshall, Catcher: Marshall played just 8 games for the Phillies, and batted 2 for 20. His contract was sold to the Giants in May. He played five seasons in the major leagues.
    John McPherson, Pitcher: McPherson had played in one previous major league game, in 1901 with the Athletics. In 1904 he pitched in 15 games for the Phillies, going 1-12, and never again played in the majors.
    John Brackenridge, Pitcher: Brackenridge pitched in 7 games for the Phillies, his only major league appearances, and had a loss in his only decision.
    Hughey Duffy, Manager: Duffy was in his second season as a major league manager (he had managed the 1901 Milwaukee Brewers in the American League). He wasn't quite through as a player; in 18 games he hit .283 for the Phillies. He managed Philadelphia for three seasons.
    John Lush, Pitcher: Lush was a utility player who went on to a 7-year major league career. In 1904 he played first base and the outfield in addition to pitching. In 106 games, he hit .276; as a pitcher he was less successful at 0-6.
    Tom Barry, Pitcher: Barry started and lost one game for the Phillies on April 15th, 1904, the second game of the season. It was the only major league game of his career. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning, giving up six hits and a walk, allowing five runs (three earned).
    Tom Fleming, Outfielder: Fleming had played for the Giants in 1899 and for the Phillies in 1902. In 3 games in 1904, the last of his major league career, he was 0 for 6.
    Tom Hall, Infielder: Nobody named Tom Hall played for the Phillies. If this is rookie Bob Hall, then we now know that he was a left-handed batter (or perhaps a switch-hitter). Bob Hall played 46 games for the Phillies in 1904 at third base, shortstop, and first base, and hit .160. He played for the Giants and the Brooklyn Superbas in 1905, his only other major league season.
    Tom Raftery, Outfielder: Raftery did not make the team in 1904, or at least he did not appear in any regular season games. He finally made it to the majors in 1909 with Cleveland, playing 8 games for the Naps that year, and never again played in the major leagues.
