 Biographical Information
Joe Burg hit quite well for the 1910 Doves but made six errors in twelve games in the field at third base (along with two in his only game at shortstop).
Buck Herzog was the regular third baseman in 1910, hitting .250, and would continue to play the position in 1911 until traded in July.
After the majors, Burg played in Milwaukee, San Francisco, and Omaha (and perhaps elsewhere). He is part of a 1916 team photo here Omaha 1916.
While there are two major leaguers (through 2007) with the last name Berg, he is the only one with the last name Burg.
