Major League Baseball Player. William "Klondike" Douglass played major league baseball for nine seasons. He was primarily a first baseman, catcher and outfielder for the St. Louis Browns (later renamed "Cardinals) in 1896-1897 and then became the everyday first baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1898, batting .258 with 105 runs scored in what would be his best full season. Douglass remained on the Phillies through the 1904 season as a utility player. For his career, Douglass posted a .274 batting average. He was usually called "Bill Douglass", and occasionally "Klondike Bill". After his major league career, Douglass continued to play minor league baseball to age 40. In the minors he was still playing at age 40. He managed a minor league team in 1905. (bio by: D. D. Thompson)
