[edit] Biographical Information

Joe Herr played three years in the majors, getting most of his at-bats with the 1888 St. Louis Browns. He also managed several seasons in the minors.

After retiring from baseball, Herr worked as a carpenter in St. Louis, MO. He died in 1933, the victim of a drowning in the Mississippi River. He is buried in St. Matthew Cemetery in St. Louis.

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".
