He appeared in 35 games for the 1912 Boston Red Sox, who won the 1912 World Series, but Nunamaker did not appear in the series. Later, he did appear in the 1920 World Series along with Thomas, Smokey Joe Wood and Tris Speaker, who had been his 1912 teammates.
Nunamaker's minor league managerial career included assignments with the Saginaw Aces in 1925-26; the Chattanooga Lookouts in 1923; the Wilson Bugs in 1924; the Corsicana Oilers in 1927; and the Lincoln Links for the first part of 1929 and all of 1930 and 1931.
