Perry Hamilton Lipe
Infielder Perry Lipe led the 1908 Virginia League with 65 runs scored, and also managed in the minors in the deep south.
He played from 1898 to 1916, though a statistical record from 1901 to 1916 is all that is available. In that time, the third basemen perennially hit near the Mendoza Line, hitting below .200 at least three times. His highest-known season batting average was .249, which he accomplished with the Macon Brigands in 1905. He held the distinction of holding the record for most consecutive games in professional baseball at 1,127, until Everett Scott broke the record on September 14, 1923.
