#4 Bobby Lowe

Bobby Lowe was a teammate of Tenney as Lowe played for the same Boston Beaneaters from 1890-1901. However, it’s likely Lowe and Tenney were trying to follow the footsteps of their manlier teammate, who is #1 on this list.  We’ll talk about him shortly.

Lowe comes in at #4 with 57 HBP’s in 12 years of service with the Beaneaters.

#3 Jeff Blauser

Many of you that watched the Atlanta Braves in the early 90’s might remember this guy... Blauser played 2nd base for the Braves from 1987-1997, and made 2 All-Star appearances with the Braves: 1993 and 1997.

Blauser absorbed 75 HBP’s at the plate in an entire decade of service with Atlanta.
