The man known by historians as baseball's first star got an upgrade to his Brooklyn monument Tuesday.
Jim Creighton was both a top hitter and pitcher during his playing days in the mid-19th century.
His marble monument at Green-Wood Cemetery was restored and revealed Tuesday.
Historians said the monument had been missing its top piece for roughly a century.
It now includes a pair of crossed bats, a base, a scorebook and a plaque with the words "America's First Baseball Star."
"Creighton became not only a great player, but became a national hero because the sporting press was developing at this time, so he became a media star," said MLB historian John Thorn.
"No one has a memory of the top of the monument being up there, but we do have, fortunately, a photograph, and from that photograph, we were able to scale what that should look like," said Green-Wood Cemetery historian Jeff Richman.
In 1862, Creighton collapsed after rounding the bases following a home run. He died several days later of an undiagnosed hernia.
He was just 21 years old.
