Career highlights and awards

Henry C. Myers (May, 1858 – April 18, 1895) was an American Major League Baseball player from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who played mainly at shortstop for three seasons from 1881 to 1884.[1]

After only playing one game for the Providence Grays during the 1881 season,[1] he was part of the Baltimore Orioles of the American Association in 1882. The team had many players with little or no Major League experience, and like Myers, many were from the Philadelphia area.[2] Besides playing shortstop for the Orioles, he was also the manager.[1][2] They finished last, 14½ games behind the 5th place team, with a 19 and 54 win/loss record.[3] He would never manage again, and made a short playing appearance in 1884 for the Wilmington Quicksteps of the Union Association.[1]

Henry died in Philadelphia at the age of 36, and was buried at the Mount Vernon Cemetery, also in Philadelphia.[1][4]
