If it seems like we just talked about Ed Stein, it’s because we did. The other day, Stein came in as the No. 99 player in Dodgers history. Well, what helped him crack the top 100 was the season he had in 1892, the season we’ll be talking about today.

Stein was with Brooklyn for six years, but his best season came during his first season with the team. As you can imagine, there’s only so much information I can get on a player who played, well, in the 1890’s!


Here’s where he ranked in baseball that season:

  • 27 wins (10th)
  • 1.22 WHIP (9th)
  • 4.5 SO/9 (4th)
  • 190 SO (5th)

Here’s where his 1892 season ranks in Dodgers history:

  • 42 starts (7th)
  • 38 complete games (7th)
  • 377 13 innings (6th)
