 Biographical Information
George Pearce, like Cy Williams, played for the Chicago Cubs in between their great 1906-1910 years and before their pennant-winning 1918 season. Pearce and Williams were the same age. Pearce was with the Cubs from 1912-1916 while Williams was with them from 1912 to 1917.
George is one of nine major leaguers (through 2007) with the last name Pearce, although he was actually born Pierce. Harry Pearce was a near-contemporary of George, breaking in at the end of the 1917 season.
