Beckley

First baseman, 1897-1904. Inducted 2014.

Played first base for the Reds for 7 years in the latter half of his lengthy career and hit over .300 in all but one season.  Holds the record for putouts by a first baseman over his career and at one time also held the career record for triples (he still sits in the top five in baseball history.)  Elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously in 1971.
