[edit] Biographical Information

Mickey Hughes pitched three years in the majors with a record of 39-28. He went 25-13 as a rookie for the 1888 Brooklyn Bridegrooms which went 88-52, and he was 9-8 for the 1889 Bridegrooms who won the American Association pennant with 93 wins. He was on the 1890 Brooklyn team for part of the season; it also won the pennant but Hughes spent part of the season with the 1890 Athletics who released him in September.

Only 5 ' 6 ", he is one of the shortest men to pitch in the majors.

The book Baseball in 1889 states that Hughes never recovered from a sore arm he developed early in 1889.

His brother Jay, seven years younger, came up in 1898 and also pitched for Brooklyn, in 1899 and 1901-02. Since both were stars on the same team (although not at the same time) and both had short major league careers, they remind one perhaps a bit of Dizzy Dean and Paul Dean.
