 Biographical Information
Birdie Lynn, the first of four players in the majors whose last name is Lynn, was a backup catcher on the Chicago White Sox from 1916 to 1920. He appeared for one at-bat in both the 1917 and the 1919 World Series. Although he never played in the majors after 1920, he was not one of the Black Sox players who got banned.
He caught for Phoenix in 1915, getting a suspension in connection with an incident where he broke an umpire's toe with his bat.
