[edit] Biographical Information

Rip Egan as an umpire in 1914

Although Jack "Rip" Egan played in only one major league game, for the Washington Senators in 1894, he was a major league umpire for years.

The source The Baseball Guru - Umpires Register shows him as an American League umpire from 1907 to 1914; he also umpired a few games in 1903. He is supposed to have been president/manager of the Scranton team in 1926, as well as managing Milwaukee, Providence, Newark, and Oklahoma City. He umped in the minors but no dates are given. He coached Providence College (1935-1937) and scouted for the Boston Red Sox (1939-1944) and Pittsburgh Pirates.

A highlight was umpiring the 1913 World Series.
