|Career highlights and awards|
Harry Garfield Lumley (September 29, 1880 – May 22, 1938) was a right fielder and manager in Major League Baseball. Nicknamed "Judge", Lumley spent his entire career with the Brooklyn Superbas in the National League. He batted and threw left-handed.
Lumley was one of the most feared sluggers in the first decade of the 20th century. In addition to his power, he also was a fast runner and a competent outfielder with a fine throwing arm. But he also had a tendency to gain weight, and a litany of injuries cut short his majors career after only seven seasons.
In 1902 Lumley hit a league-leading 18 home runs in for the St. Paul Saints of the American Association. He jumped to the Western League in 1903, playing for Colorado and Seattle. After led the Western League with a .387 average, Lumley was drafted by the Brooklyn Superbas. He played with Brooklyn for seven years, coming out to the club in 1904 and serving until the 1910 midseason.
