[edit] Biographical Information

Bill Stearns was the youngest player in the 1871 National Association. He began as a pitcher but in 1874-75 he was used a lot in the outfield as well.

Stearns managed to pitch five years in the National Association in spite of posting a record of 12-64. He was good, however, in 1871, going 2-0 for the Olympics, a team whose only other pitcher was Asa Brainard.
