(1847–1937) baseball player; born in Yonkers, N.Y. One of baseball's pioneers, as a shortstop he was the star player on the famed Cincinnati Red Stockings of 1869, baseball's first admittedly professional club, which was managed by his brother, Harry Wright. He played in the first seven years of the National League's existence (1876–82), and in 1937 he was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame.
