Joe Herr played three years in the majors, getting most of his at-bats with the St. Louis Browns in 1888. He also managed several seasons in the minors. He also worked three American Association games as an umpire in 1888.
There is a different player named Eddie Herr, who had a long minor league career and was named Edward Joseph Herr. Both were born and died in St. Louis, although the major league Herr lived from 1865-1933 while the minor league Herr lived from 1873-1943. The major leaguer was a position player while the minor leaguer was a pitcher. There are some baseball cards from 1887 on the web described as "Ed Herr", but at least in one case the actual name on the card is "J. Herr".
