Herman Long had 1,096 Errors over his career, which is more than anyone else. It is an unbreakable record, but he did that in a time where errors were more easily given, and he was a player who was fearless in doing what was needed to stop the ball from getting past the infield. This means that Long had incredible range, and his Defensive bWAR was very good, so despite the Errors, we have one of the best defensive players of his day.
Long played most of his career with the Boston Beaneaters, and he was also a respectable hitter. The Shortstop had 2,129 career Hits, and he was a speed demon on the base paths with 537 career Stolen Bases, and 1,456 Runs Scored. He led the National League in Runs (149) in 1893, and his 12 Home Runs in 1900 was enough to win that title. Long would have a career Batting Average of .277.
