William Joseph "Jap" Barbeau (June 10, 1882 – September 10, 1969) was a Major League Baseball third baseman who played for four seasons. He played for the Cleveland Naps from 1905 to 1906, the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1909, and the St. Louis Cardinals from 1909 to 1910. Barbeau stood at just 5 ft 5 in (1.65 m).


Barbeau started his professional baseball career in 1905. In August, he was purchased by the Cleveland Naps and spent the rest of 1905 and 1906 with them. However, he hit just .194 in 1906 and was released. He played for the American Association's Toledo Mud Hens in 1907 and 1908. In 1909, he was the starting third baseman for the Pittsburgh Pirates but was then traded to the Cardinals in August. After a slow start in 1910, he was sent back down to the minors. From 1910 to 1919, Barbeau played in the American Association, the Pacific Coast League, and the Western League. He had 160 hits in the majors and 1,463 hits in a 13-year minor league career.[1]
