 Biographical Information
"Andrus is hitting and playing short second to none . . ." - Sporting Life's Hamilton, ON correspondent, about Andrus' play for Hamilton, in the Sept. 9, 1885 issue
In the minors he played for Hamilton in Canada during three seasons, for Minneapolis (two seasons), and Buffalo (two seasons), as well as Portland, Montreal, Grand Rapids, Manchester, Jamestown and Kansas City.
According to the book Progressive Men of the State of Montana, although he was born in Canada, Andrus came from a prominent New York family. His father was in the lumber business and moved from New York to Ontario in 1845. Wiman began playing professional baseball in 1883 and used the money he earned to attend medical school at Trinity College in Toronto, ON during the winters (Trinity is now part of the University of Toronto). He received his M.D. in 1893 and came to Montana to practice. He served two terms as mayor of Miles City, MT, a town in eastern Montana.
"Andrus is not acquainted with the many peculiarities of Kansas City's right field and it will probably take him some time to get accustomed to the slope and the sun. He is a very fast man, though, and will cover plenty of ground." - Sporting Life, April 16, 1892
