favorite...hmm. tough call. Im going with "Big" Ed Delahanty ( he had a very weird life, but that isn't the reason i like him). I also am a big Billy Hamilton fan.

Didn't "Big Ed" get drunk on a train, got off and fell into a river and drown?

yes..well sort of. he was thrown off the train for being drunk. then was stoped by a bridge watchman and jumped into the river.

He might have been rembered as one of the alltime greats had he been able to finish his career.
