Edward Hugh “Ned” Hanlon (August 22, 1857 - April 14, 1937) was a 19th century baseball player whose greater claim to fame was as a manager, collecting 1,313 wins – 28th on the all-time list for managers. Although Hanlon joined the Cleveland Blues of the National League in 1880, his 12-year playing career – spent with several different teams – was far stellar. But when he was hired as manager of the Pittsburgh Alleghenys (forerunner of the Pittsburgh Pirates) in 1889, but left after one season to join the Pittsburgh Burghers of the short-lived Players’ League. In 1892 he signed on with the Baltimore Orioles, truly coming into his own as a manager and capturing the National League title from 1894 to 1896 before taking the manager’s position of the Brooklyn Superbas in 1899. His final managerial job was with the Cincinnati Reds beginning in 1906; he retired from the game after the 1907 season. He finished his managerial career with a 1313–1164 record, and from 1894 to 1900 led teams to seven consecutive .600-plus winning percentages. In 1996, Hanlon was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
