[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1894 Phillies, although featuring an outfield of .400 hitters and a team average of .349, finished only fourth in the league, distantly behind the 1894 Orioles. The Phillies, who had not won since forming in 1883, would not win a pennant until 1915 and then again not until 1950.

Although the regular outfielders were the most famous, the highest average on the team actually belonged to 21-year-old Tuck Turner, who hit .416 in 339 at-bats. He would hit .386 the following year.

The star of the pitching staff was 21-year-old Jack Taylor, who went 23-13. He would win 26 the following year. 23-year-old Kid Carsey went 18-12, and would win 24 the following year. Gus Weyhing, who had earlier won 30 games four years in a row, was 16-14 and would go on to 17 in 1899.

Manager Arthur Irwin, who managed nine years in the majors, had one of his more successful years.
