Jim Britt was the only pitcher used by the Brooklyn Atlantics in 1872, pitching every inning of every game. The next year, 1873, he pitched almost every inning for the Atlantics, getting every decision but one, as player-manager Bob Ferguson came in and pitched a few innings, going 0-1.
Britt was 16 years old in 1872, the youngest player in the league (as far as birthdates are known).
