Biographical Information[edit]

Eddie Warner played major league baseball in 1912. Earlier that year, he was part of a Brown University team that went 19-5. Teammates on that Brown team included Joe Conzelman and Ken Nash, who also came to the majors.

The Brown University site refers to him as "Eddie Warner".

Warner didn't pitch too badly, given that he was a raw rookie. His ERA wasn't too much higher than the league average. However, the 1912 Pittsburgh Pirates won 93 games that year and most of the team had ERA's under 3.00.

An article in The Pittsburgh Press March 6, 1955, said he had worked at Alcoa.

"Eddie Warner, the former Brown University pitcher, who was released last Winter by the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Columbus Club, is seriously considering giving up base ball. Diasppointment at not being able to stay in the major league is the reason why Warner may decide to enter some other business." - Sporting Life, March 29, 1913
"Former Corsairs Leave Baseball and Achieve Success in the Business World. . . (Pirates owner Dreyfuss) recognized the duo as two former Corsairs, viz., Ed Warner and Dave Henry, pitchers who graduated from Brown University several years ago and joined the Bandits for a whirl at major league base ball. A season or less satisfied them that other ventures, for example, commercial enterprises, were more favorable. These handsome lads of near 30 have achieved success far beyond that allotted to lads who stick to base ball as a profession. Both are quondam South Americans, now representing big aluminum and rubber companies owned by American capital. While in Brown they took a course in Spanish . . ." - Sporting Life, Jan. 27, 1917
