Major League Baseball Player. Born in Evansville, Indiana, on June 9, 1887, he was a first baseman making his debut for the Boston Braves on May 1, 1914. Although he only played for a few weeks at the Major League level he had a .333 batting average and a 1.000 fielding percentage. However, he went on to be most noted for his Minor League achievements with the Fort Worth Panthers (1922-24). In 1924, he hit 55 home runs, drove in 196 runs, with a batting average of .349 and set several league records that stand to this day, including most runs scored 150, extra base hits 96 and 414 total bases. He later served as a judge for the Texas Tarrant County court system before his death at age 70 on March 26, 1958, in Fort Worth, Texas.
