Dunlap's Leg Injury

Dunlap hurt himself running bases at Washington last Saturday.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, July 18, 1884

I kind of made fun of Dunlap's injury the other day but reading this short piece from the Globe, I realized that Dunlap actually had a history of lower-body injuries.  It was leg injuries that effectively ended his major league career by the time he was 31 years old.  So maybe I was a little too quick to make the fun.
