By Joe Kcichler . NEW YORK, May 8. W-Ever hew of Charlie (old Hoss) Radbourne? or Fred (Sure Shot) Dunlap? . Both prospered in the eighties. Radbourne was the king of Na- .onal league pitehers. Dunlap was the one and only among the in- zieiders. . Radbournc, handle-bar mustache and all, won 60 games for the Providence Grays (sometimes called the Yankees) In 1884. He pitched 12 games that year. Two Pitchers Carried In those days a club carried only two pitehers. Radbourne's pitching partner, Jim Sweeney, decided to Jump the club In July to play with the outlaw Union Association. That left it up to Radbourne. All Old Hoss did was plteh the last 37 games for Providence, winning 32 of them. There were days when he couldn't lift his right arm for Ills morning shave. He not only wonajhe pennant for the Grays, but "itched and won all three games against the New York Metropolitans In the World Series that fall. It was the best three out of five then. It also was the first World Series in history. He wound up with 30S victories in 12 seasons. Dunlay Breaks In Dunlay broke in with the old Cleveland Spiders ,in 1880 and starred in the National League for 11 years. Until Nap Lajoie came along he was regarded as the greatest second baseman whomever lived. His greatest year was in 1884 when he swatted .420. That was the year he jumped Cleveland for the Union Association and was paid n salary of $G,000, four times the salaries paid in those days. Although Dunlap could not read nor write. he quit the game in 1891 with S100,- 000. He died a few years later, a pauper. Fielding Was Fast Dunlap was an outslanding hitter but he was more famous for his fielding. He had a powerful arm and was tremendously fast. Radbourne and Dunlap are two "musts" on the ancient National League all-star team. Only those who spent most of their playlnp days between the years 1876 and' 1000 were considered. Another con- was that the players sideration in^ hav ve spent a majority of their big league career in the National League.
