Biographical Information[edit]

Topsy Hartsel set the American League record for most walks in a season, in 1905, a record not to be broken until Babe Ruth came along and started playing outfield regularly.

Hartsel managed the Toledo Mud Hens in 1912, for part of 1913, and again in 1914. The team was in the American Association the first two years and in the Southern Michigan League the final year.
