[edit] Biographical Information

Mike "Skinner" Hopkins appeared in one game for the 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates, going 2-for-2 with a single and a double. He played catcher, making no errors. He was 29 at the time.

The 1902 Pirates were a top team, winning 103 games that year and losing only 36. However, the position of catcher was a bit of a problem, with regular Harry Smith hitting only .189. A number of other catchers were tried at the position, with Ed Phelps becoming the # 1 catcher in 1903 and Smith continuing as back-up.
