 Biographical Information
Ted Kennedy pitched a couple of years in the major leagues, but became more famous as an inventor and manufacturer. He invented an early type of glove, and a tutorial survives where he instructs the reader on how to throw the curveball. He eventually sold out to Al Spalding's company.
He died after being shocked while experimenting with a burglar alarm.

He would presumably be on the bearing-a-famous-name team, along with George Washington, another player bearing the name of a politician.
