Peter James Meegan (November 13, 1862 – March 15, 1905), also known as "Steady" Pete,[1] was an American Major League Baseball player who pitched for two seasons; one with the 1884 Richmond Virginians, and the other for the 1885 Pittsburg Alleghenys, both of the American Association.


Born in San Francisco, California, he made his major league debut for Richmond on August 12, 1884, when the Virginians joined the Association as a late season replacement team. He started 22 games that season, completed all of them, and threw one shutout. In 179 innings pitched, he struck out 106 batters, and had a 4.32 ERA along with a 7-12 win-loss record.[2] After the season ended, the Virginians folded.

For the 1885 season, Meegan joined the Pittsburg Alleghenys, and had a 7-8 win-loss record in 18 games pitched. He started 16 of those games, completed 14, and recorded one shutout. He also struck out 58 batters in 146 innings pitched. This was his last Major League season.[3]


Meegan died in his hometown of San Francisco at the age of 42, and is interred at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, California.[2]
