During the twenty-four seasons (from 1864 to 1888 inclusive), Dr. W. G. Grace has played, in first-class matches, 721 completed innings and scored 32,814 runs, an average of nearly 45 runs an inning. He has made 100 runs and upwards in an inning no fewer than one hundred and thirty-five times, being not out in twenty-five of these innings. His highest scores are 400, 344, 318, 268, 261, 259, 224, 221, 217, 215, 210, 210, 197, 196, 192, 189, 183, 182, 181, 180, 179, 178, 177, 177, 174, 173, 172, 172, 170 and 170. His 400 (not out) was made against twenty-two in the field, and included four 6's, twenty-one 4's, six 3's, fifty-eight 2's, and one hundred and fifty-eight singles-the last item proving that the bowling was not so very weak. This score has only been exceeded four times, and then in minor matches with only eleven in the field. Dr. Grace was born July 18, 1848, near Bristol, Eng., and has been playing in first-class matches since 1864.
