Biographical Information[edit]

Buzzy Wares played in the majors in 1913 and 1914. With the St. Louis Browns in 1914, he appeared at shortstop almost as often as the regular, Doc Lavan. Wares also played 14 seasons in the minors.

He managed the Wichita Witches in 1915, Little Rock Travelers in 1917, and the Seattle Rainiers in 1920-1921.

Wares was a St. Louis Cardinals coach from 1930 to 1935 and 1937 to 1952. The July 1950 Baseball Digest recognized him as one of the longest-serving major league coaches at the time.
