 Biographical Information
Redleg Snyder is noted for hitting only .151 in 1876, the first year of the new National League, a year in which the league as a whole hit .265. Snyder was a regular who got over 200 at-bats (no one on his team had more than 276 at-bats that year).
Snyder came back in 1884 with the short-lived Union Association, hitting .192 in a league that hit .245. However, his team hit only .175. On the other hand, he had no extra-base hits, thus posting a slugging percentage of .192, while the league's slugging percentage was .316.
