One Arm Daily

A dispatch just received here states that A.H. Henderson, of the Baltimore Union Association club, tonight signed one-armed Hugh Daily; price $3,100.
-Cleveland Herald, January 30, 1884

I'm posting this only because I wanted to mention that Daily, who actually played with the Maroons in 1885, struck out 483 batters in 1884. He was known as a guy with a bit of a temper and I almost posted something last week about a fight he got into with a teammate earlier in his career. It should also be mentioned that One Arm Daily actually had two arms but only one hand. But, again, 483 K's and I'm back to the thought of what kind of season Radbourne would have had in the UA in 1884.
