Fred Tenney

As a rookie in 1894, Fred Tenney got off to a very good start with the Boston Beaneaters (now the Atlanta Braves).

On July 21, in a 14-3 Boston win over New York‚  Fred belts a home run off Jouett Meekin. It would be 1 of 3 home runs for the season.

He would play in 21 games that year and end up with a .395 batting average. Much better than he would do next year when he played in 49 games and batted .272.
