Biographical Information[edit]

Art McCoy came to the majors for two games with the Washington Nationals in 1889. He had been with Chattanooga where he hit .359 in a partial season. Art was a two-way player in the minors but played only second base in the majors. Much of his minor league career was spent with Danville, in the town where he was born.

"McCoy, the right fielder of the Chattanooga ball team, left on Sunday last for his home, in Danville, Pa., in answer to a telegram announcing the death of his wife. A good deal of feeling has been aroused in the local club because of Manager Wayne refusing to allow McCoy to leave Saturday morning, at which time he received a telegram announcing his wife's serious illness. Wayne believed it was a ruse to get away for awhile." - Sporting Life, June 19, 1889
