On this day in 1863, Walter Robert "Walt" Wilmot was born in Plover, Wisconsin. He was 24 when he broke into the major leagues with the 1888 Washington Nationals in the NL, and played ten MLB seasons over the next eleven years as a member of the Nationals, Cubs (then known as the Chicago Colts) and New York Giants.
Wilmot's best season was likely his 1890 campaign with the Colts, when he led the National League with 139 games played and 13 home runs and is credited with a career high 76 stolen bases. His major league career was over in 1898 but he went on to play and manage for six more seasons in the minors, including several years at the helm of the Minneapolis Millers.
