Albert John Tesch
Birth: Jan. 27, 1891
Death: Aug. 3, 1947

Major League Baseball Player. Al Tesch was a career minor leaguer except for an 8 game stint in the Major Leagues with the 1915 Brooklyn Tip-Tops. The Jersey City, New Jersey native played with the Brockton, MA club of the New England League, Little Rock of the Southern Association, Ottawa of the Canadian League and Kansas City Blues of the American Association where he stole 86 bases in 1914. Nicknamed 'Tiny', he signed with the New York Yankees in 1915, but did not report, instead jumping to the Federal League. Tesch batted .286 with 2 RBI during his brief stint, and appeared at 2nd base in three of those contests. He left professional baseball after the Federal League disbanded, but continued to play semi-pro ball in Hudson County, New Jersey for several years, notably with the West New Yorkers, Bethlehem Steel and the Jersey City Elks Club. A 32nd Degree Mason, he later worked as an Industrial Engineer for the Insurance Company of North America located in New York City. He passed away from Myocardial Disease at the age of 56 at the Jersey City Medical Center.  (bio by: Frank Russo)
