Biography

Robert Edward "The Magnet" Addy (February 1845 - April 9, 1910) was a 19th century Major League Baseball player who hailed from Rochester, New York. He was an outfielder and second baseman for the majority of his career in the National Association and the National League.

In 1866, he is credited with employing the first slide in an organized game, while playing for the Rockford Forest Citys.

On January 20, 1874, the National Association's Judiciary Committee met to discuss, among other things, charges that Bob had joined the Boston Red Stockings before 60 days had elapsed since leaving his previous team, the Rockford club. He was acquitted of these days and was allowed to play.

Bob passed away at the age of 65 in Pocatello, Idaho and was laid to rest at Mountain View Cemetery. Find-A-Grave website shows that he was interned as "Eddy" Addy, with a birthdate of February 1838.
