 Biographical Information
Kip Selbach was an above-average player in a thirteen-year major league career split between the high-scoring 1890's and the beginning of the deadball era in the early 1900's. He mostly played left field.
Although he led the league in triples in 1895, Selbach typically was not a league leader. However, his Adjusted OPS+ scores are above average, with a career score of 121, tying him with players such as Dave Parker, Al Oliver, and Cecil Cooper, although he was not as prominent in his time as they were in theirs.
Selbach drew a lot of walks, and also stole 334 bases lifetime, which, combined with an ability to hit lots of doubles and triples, made him an offensive force. He is # 52 on the lifetime list for most triples.
Selbach was only 5' 7", but had decent range in the outfield.
