Biographical Information[edit]

Jim Pirie was apparently the second Canadian-born major league player, when he appeared in 5 games for the Philadelphia Quakers in 1883. He was 30 years old at the time, and his appearances were near the end of the 1883 season. The team went 17-81 that year, and the regular shortstop was Bill McClellan, who would return as the shortstop the following year.
