Lumley was born in Forest City, Pennsylvania, in 1880. In 1901, he started his professional baseball career with Rome of the New York State League. He batted .350. The following season, he played for St. Paul of the American Association and led the league with 18 home runs. In 1903, Lumley joined Seattle of the Pacific Coast League and led the league with a .387 batting average. After the season, he was drafted by the Superbas.[1]

In Lumley's first major league season, he batted .279 for Brooklyn and led the NL with nine home runs and 18 triples. Since then, only one other first-year player (Ralph Kiner in 1946) has led his league in home runs.

He then batted .293 in 1905. In 1906, he batted .324 with nine home runs and 12 triples. In 1907, he batted .267 with nine home runs. Suffering from an ankle injury, Lumley struggled in 1908 and finished with a batting average of .216. He was named Brooklyn's manager for 1909. That year, he appeared in 55 games as a player and batted .250 with no home runs. The Superbas had a record of 55-98, and Lumley was replaced as manager before the 1910 season. He appeared in eight games in 1910 before being released.[1]

After his MLB career ended, Lumley operated a tavern. He died in Binghamton, New York, in 1938.[1]
