Biographical Information[edit]

Merton Merrill "Moxie" Meixell played in the majors in July 1912 for the Cleveland Naps. As a batter he went 1-for-2.

Meixell was an outfielder, trying to succeed on a team that also featured Joe Jackson in the outfield. Meixell was a couple of years older than Joe.

In the minors he rarely played for the same team two years in a row. An exception was when he played for the Columbus Discoverers for two years in the Nebraska State League in 1910 and 1911. He led the team with a .315 batting average in 1911 (another source claims it was .324).
