An American former professional baseball player, John W. Abadie, was one of the major baseball players in the years reminiscent of the 19th century. He plied his trade as a baseball first baseman during his career.
He played along in the Major League Baseball during the 1875 season with Philadelphia Centennials and later on switched to Brooklyn Atlantics. However, before switching to majors, he played as a semi-professional in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is reported that his team was the hardest to best in exhibition games.
He was drafted into the major league when the National Association expanded along in 1875. But the league lost five of its team in the next year resulting in the breakdown of the league. John Abadie then switched back to playing for independent teams in the Minor leagues and thus never appeared in the Major League games again.
John W. Abadie as he named at birth, was born on November 4, 1854. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He lived in Philadelphia for the best part of his career before settling down in Pemberton, New Jersey. He breathed his last on May 17, 1905, at the age of 50.
He remains the only baseball player to have a unique triple slash line during the stint as Major League Baseball player. His career stood at (.224/.224/.224), a unique phenomenon.
