Brouthers' career began in 1879 and didn't finish until 1904 (with a gap between 1896 and 1904), a span of four decades. From the last weeks of the 1886 season to the first month of the 1890 season, Brouthers had more career home runs than any other player. He was the third Major Leaguer to reach 100 or more career homers (after Harry Stovey and Roger Connor).
Major League Baseball claims his career batting average was .349. Other sources such as baseball-reference.com (http://www.baseball-reference.com/b/broutda01.shtml) indicate his career mark was .342. This disparity results from a league rule in effect in 1886 and 1887, which counted walks as hits. Some sources reflect the statistics as originally recorded, while others change them retroactively.
DanBrouthers was born on Saturday, May 8, 1858, in Sylvan Lake, New York.
Brouthers was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 23, 1879, with the Troy Trojans, and his Major League Baseball stats for every season he played, along with his career totals are on this page.
