On this date in 1876, Ross Barnes was the first player to hit a home run in the National League while playing for the Chicago White Stockings, the ancestors of today's Chicago Cubs. He was the first player to lead two different leagues in hitting with batting titles in the National Association (1872 and 1873), and in the debut season of the National League (1876).

He specialized in "fair-foul hits", in which he chopped down on balls with a proper amount of "English" on it to make it land fair and bound foul, remaining in play under the rules of the time. That rule was eventually changed.
