The once famous third baseman Bill Hague, who in his day was known as "Scientific William," is now one of the ticket takers at Athletic park, Philadelphia. Between that and a nice morning paper route Bill manages to make a comfortable living.-The Atchison Champion, June 12, 1891
Hague, who started at third base for the Brown Stockings in 1875, died just a few years later in 1898. But the most important thing here is that nickname. Somebody needs to get that up on Baseball Reference because it's a classic.
