Certainly could be. McGlynn, btw, allowed only 6 home runs in his entire major league career, but gave up 4 in this game. And at least two of Wilson's were over-the-fence home runs, though who knows how big the Chester park was.

I just wish I knew more about Wilson. About all I've got is a passenger list from December 1903 that gives his age then as 25.

Just wondering if this might be the first instance of an African-American hitting three home runs off a future Major Leaguer?
