Mickey Hughes


Mickey threw for the Bridgeport Giants in 1885, before moving up to the bigs with Brooklyn from 1888 through 1890.

A Brooklyn program from 1890 described him as “a typical sample of a bright, clean-cut, plucky and nobby New York boy. He was born the other side of the Bridge in 1866, and got his first experience, as thousands of other boys had to do in the big city, on the open lots and vacant blocks about Central Park, and always under difficulties, for while the boys were not chasing the ball the police were chasing them. Young Hughes at an early day showed marked ability as a pitcher, being always cool and steady, and with excellent control of his temper even under great provocation."

Francis Healy
