Biographical Information[edit]

Bris Lord played eight years in the major leagues, including twice with Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics. He appeared in the 1905 World Series, the 1910 World Series, and the 1911 World Series.

Lord played on an amateur team in 1901 in the Chester, PA area with Rube Vinson and Joe Cassidy.

When he was traded in 1910, the young Joe Jackson was involved in the trade. One could argue that Connie Mack made a mistake in trading away the 20-year-old Jackson, but Lord played well in the rest of 1910 and 1911 and helped bring the A's two World Series championships in 1910 and 1911. Jackson, for his part, hit around .400 in each of 1910-12.

Lord managed the Mobile Sea Gulls in 1914 and the Memphis Chicks in 1915. He also coached Pennsylvania Military College in 1920.
