The book Honus Wagner: The Life of Baseball's Flying Dutchman mentions a game in which McMackin pitched a two-hitter for Paterson against Hartford. Wagner got his hand stuck in his pocket somehow and couldn't get it out until the pocket was slit open with a knife.
The book Ed Barrow: The Bulldog Who Built the Yankees' First Dynasty says that McMackin pitched badly in a game for Paterson because he was drunk and Barrow suspended him for a few games. McMackin is described as one of the team's best pitchers.
Here is a photo of the 1896 Paterson team, including McMackin, Wagner and Barrow.
Here is a photo of McMackin in a White Sox uniform in 1902.
McMackin was pitching as early as 1893 with Sandusky.
