John J. McGraw says: “My selection of Ed Delehanty on the All-National League team for center field is a source of much satisfaction to me. Ed Delehanty was the Babe Ruth of his day. Though he was a right-handed hitter, Ruth did not have a great deal on him when it came to smashing the ball out of the lot. He was a tall fellow with broad, powerful shoulders that gave him great swinging strength. Delehanty, I believe, holds the record of having hit four home runs in one game. My, how he could plaster that ball!”
