 Biographical Information
Catcher Admiral Schlei played eight seasons in the National League. For five of the eight years, he was the # 1 catcher on his team.
One source believes that he was nicknamed "Admiral" after Admiral Schley, a hero of the Spanish-American War. Whatever the case, newspapers during his major league career seemed to refer to him as often by "Admiral Schlei" as by his given first name.
