    Notes 
    • Jimmy Collins (January 16, 1870 – March 6, 1943) played for the Boston Red Sox team that won the first World Series in 1903.

      He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945 with this note: "Known for his wizardry in the field at third base, Collins fame came from being able to make any play on a ball in the vicinity of third. A stellar hitter as well, Collins hit .300 or better five times with a career best .346 coming in 1897 for the Boston Beaneaters. In 1903, Collins led the Boston Red Sox to their first ever World Championship and will be forever remembered for his ability to affect the other team’s willingness to sacrifice bunt due to his remarkable fielding."
