 Biographical Information
Andy Sommers, also known as Pete Sommers played four seasons in the majors, primarily as a catcher. In that time, he appeared for six teams.
His minor league career ran from 1885 to 1896 and he also managed several seasons in the minors.
In 1885 as a young player he was arrested for playing ball on a Sunday (which used to be against the law in many places), and apparently convicted by a jury because the team appealed. Source: The Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract.
