Professional Baseball Player, Umpire. William J. "Barry" McCormick began his Major League Baseball career in his homestate with the Louisville Colonels when he was 21 years old in 1895. He played in the Majors for eleven seasons, and later became an umpire. He was a participant during a Major League record for runs scored in a single game with Chicago when they clobbered his former team 36 to 7 in 1897. He was later released by the Cubs in favor of future Hall of Famer Joe Tinker and went to play for the St. Louis Browns while ending his playing career with the Washington Senators. He led the American League in games played with 139 in 1902 and was involved in fielding an assisted triple play on two separate occasions, a baseball rarity. During most of his playing time he was the quintessential utility infielder, appearing in 989 games and carrying a .238 lifetime batting average. Many of the highlights of his baseball career, however, came during his fourteen seasons as an umpire in the National League. Barry umpired the longest game ever played on May 1, 1920, a 26 inning marathon that he eventually stopped due to darkness. He also called balls and strikes in a no-hitter thrown by Claude Hendrix in 1915 and was part of the crew that umpired the World Series in 1922. (bio by: K Guy)
