    Like Sean Casey, Ed Konetchy was a first baseman without great power, but with a good line-drive bat and a cheerful disposition that made him popular with teammates and opponents alike. On the other hand, I don't remember Sean ever stealing home twice in one game, which Ed did. Ed has a few other milestones: he hit in 10 consecutive ABs, and he leld the record for most games played as a Cardinal until Rogers Hornsby broke it. He also has the most career triples of any eligible player not in the HOF.

    Also, I missed a couple of early 20th-century Reds: Art Fromme and Mike Kahoe. I don't have any anecdotage about them...
