Dick 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.
