Career highlights and awards

Fraley W. Rogers (December 25, 1850 – May 10, 1881) was an American baseball player at the dawn of the professional era. He played primarily for the amateur Star club of Brooklyn. In 1872 he moved to right field for the Boston Red Stockings in the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players, the first professional league now in its second season.

Boston won the championship. It was Rogers' only full season with the pros, but he did play in one game for the Red Stockings in 1873.[1]

Rogers committed suicide with a gun,[2] at the age of 30 in New York City, and is interred at Pine Grove Cemetery in Westborough, Massachusetts.[1]
