Biographical Information[edit]

SABR researchers have made extensive efforts to try to track down Gene Vadeboncoeur's career and death. While born in Quebec (and the first player born in the province to play in the major leagues) he moved to Syracuse, NY with his family around 1868. A 1912 Lawrence, MA newspaper said that he died around 1903, but his death certificate has not yet been found. He also used the name Eugene F. Vadeboncoeur (sometimes spelled Vadboncoeur) during his lifetime.
