Birth: Jul. 31, 1888
Death: Mar. 6, 1912

Major League Baseball Player. He pitched two games in the Major Leagues for the Brooklyn Superbas, one in 1908 and one in 1909, hurling 7.3 innings during that time and accruing a 2.58 ERA. A career minor leaguer, his family actually moved to Brooklyn from Cheraw, South Carolina when he was a 12 years old. It was there that he learned his skills on the diamond. Signed by Brooklyn after making his mark with the minor league Marquettes and George Gould's Missouri-Pacific team, after his release by the Superbas he played with Lawrence and Brockton of the New England League and then Rochester of the International League. His final stop was with Memphis of the Southern League 1911. While with Memphis, he underwent an operation for his heart, and before fully recovered, began to practice pitching in early 1912. The wound from the operation reopened and he was recommend by specialists to go to his home in Brooklyn to rehab and rest. Unfortunately, before he had a chance to recover, he passed away at age 22 due to general peritonitis and myocardial adenitis. He left a wife and two children, a boy and a girl.
