Fleeting Fame


Frederick Dunlap (1859-1902) was a second baseman in major league baseball from 1880 to 1891, playing for the Pittsburgh Alleghenys from 1888 to 1890. His career ended in 1891 when, while playing for the Washington Statesmen, he broke his leg sliding into a base; rather than list him as disabled and put him on half-pay, the team owner simply fired him. Dunlap went into the construction business, bet on the horses, and lost his savings of $100,000. He died at the age of 43, and a former player who attended his funeral said, “There were not enough friends of Dunlap at his funeral to bury him and we had to call on the hack drivers to make up the list of active pall-bearers.”
