Hurely spent the
1868 season with the Buckeyes. The former
Columbia University student was one of
the few left handers in the game at the
time. His time spent with the Buckeyes
gained the eye of Red Stocking manager
Harry Wright who signed Hurley as the
lone backup to the 1869 Red Stocking
team. As substitute, when not playing,
he served as scorekeeper for the games.
His 1869 salary was $600.
