Harry Bartholomew Hooper (August 24, 1887 - December 18, 1974) was a Major League Baseball player in the early 20th century.
Hooper prided himself on being a college man of high ideals during an era when most ballplayers weren't, and he nearly became a civil engineer before the lure of big money led him to sign with the Red Sox for $2,850 in 1909.
Hooper never led the American League in any of the important offensive categories, but he did compile a valuable.403 on-base average as the Red Sox leadoff hitter from 1909 to 1920, and became the Red Sox' all-time leader in triples with 130 and in stolen bases with 300.

The strongly religious Hooper was reputed to have prayed for a Boston victory in the final game of the 1912 Series and to have attributed to divine intervention his bare-handed, game-saving catch off Larry Doyle which prevented victory by the Giants.
Recalling his years with the Red Sox, Hooper told Lawrence Ritter that it was he who convinced manager Ed Barrow to move young Babe Ruth to the outfield on the days when Ruth was not pitching in order to exploit Ruth's crowd appeal and ability as a slugger.
In 1971 Hooper was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee.

 Baseball Book Reviews
Harry Hooper is an unusual kind of biography, one in which the nominal subject is sometimes dominated by the events and often by the personalities which surround him.
Hooper is unusual in that his hitting improved significantly in the so-called declining years of his career - with the White Sox in the 1920's - over his achievements in the Red Sox glory years before 1919.
Hooper's greater output at the plate, particularly after 1920, came at a time when some fundamental changes were occurring in the chemistry of the game.

In Harry Hooper: An American Baseball Life, reissued in paperback this year, Paul J. Zingg looks at the history of the game through outfielder’s flip-down shades (which, incidentally, his subject was the first to wear) to view changes in the game in the early twentieth century through the career of a workmanlike hitter and outfielder.
Hooper’s teammates and coaches hailed him as a clutch player, praise corroborated by this arcane distinction: he still holds the record for most World Series assists by right fielder.
Hooper earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering while playing for his college team, and his pedigree and reputation for gentlemanly conduct off the field helped club owners and their publicists turn baseball’s image from that of a game associated with saloons and brothels to that of a profession rooted in solid middle-class values.

Hooper, a member of Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame, played for the Red Sox and the White Sox in a career that spanned from 1909 to 1920.
Hooper's story doubles as a coming-of-age tale of the national pastime, which emerged from ruffian roots to become a sport eagerly recruiting college students (especially from Catholic schools like St. Mary's) and taking pride in honesty and good manners.
Hooper played many key roles in the gentrification of the game: setting a sterling example through his integrity; representing ballplayers in an early labor dispute; and bringing the Chicago White Sox back into the baseball fold after the Black Sox scandal.
