Jacob Emanuel Pike
One of the few Dark Blue outfielders listed in this web site (that was the name of Hartford's NL franchise in 1877), Jay was the brother of the celebrated star Lipman Pike, who was baseball's first professional player. Jay played the outfield in one game in 1877, for Hartford of the National League. He also played the outfield for the Lowell, Massachusetts squad that won the 1875 state championship and claimed the New England title (encyclopedia of JEWS in sports). That same year, he also umpired in the National Association.
Pike got one hit in four at-bats in his only major league contest, and so has a .250 career batting average.
Pike played one game with the Hartford Dark Blues in 1877.
