Hughie Jennings

Over 100 RBIs With No Home Runs

Hughie Jennings

Hughie Jennings had three seasons of 100 RBIs (1894-1896) and scored 100 runs in a season 5 times (1894-1898). In 1907, he became manager of the Detroit Tigers, a team that included future Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford. Jennings led the Tigers to 3 consecutive AL pennants: 1907, 1908 and 1909.


Since 1900, only one player has ever knocked in 100+ runs without hitting a home run. The brilliant third baseman Lave Cross, while playing with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1902, tallied 108 RBIs without hitting a single round-tripper.

However, the record belongs to Hall of Fame short stop Hughie Jennings. In 1896, Jennings knocked in 121 runs–and did so with no homers. Amazing!
