Honus WAGNER (HOF)

Biography

John J. McGraw says: “It may be surprising to modern-day fans to know that for a long time Wagner also held the world’s unofficial record for making the longest throw. While playing first base for Louisville, Wagner took part in a benefit game in October, 1898. As a curtain raiser to this game there was a field contest in throwing and running. Wagner made a throw of 134 yards, 1 foot and 8 inches.”
