Jimmy Collins

Jimmy Collins was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945 and the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986.

He was born in Buffalo, New York in 1870. After graduating St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute he went to work for the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad and played baseball in the Buffalo City League.

Collins began his career with the minor league Buffalo Bisons of the Eastern League, the forerunner of the current International League, in 1893. That season, he was used primarily as a shortstop, batting .286 in 76 games. In 1894, Collins was moved to the outfield by the Bisons. He batted .352 with nine home runs in 125 games.

In 1895 his contract was purchased by the Boston Beaneaters (forerunner of the Atlanta Braves) for $500 and he went on to play fourteen seasons in the major leagues. From 1901-1906, he was player-manager of the Boston Americans (forerunner of the Boston Red Sox) and was the winning manager in the first-ever World Series in 1903.

After his retirement from baseball, Collins moved back to Buffalo, where he worked for the Buffalo Parks Department. Collins died of pneumonia on March 6, 1943 at the age of 73.
