On August 14, 1902 –At South End Grounds, Little Tommy Leach of Pittsburgh, hits two home runs at Boston. He will close out the season with only 6, all inside-the-park, but it is enough to give him sole leadership of the National League, which totals only 99. Leach’s leading number is the lowest since Paul Hines hit four in a 60-game schedule in 1878.

Leach goes 4-5 on the day adding a double and drove in 3 of the Pirate runs all vs Boston Beaneater starter Mal Eason.
