Biographical Information[edit]

Bill Fox played in the 1897 National League and the 1901 National League. Most of his games were with the 1901 Reds, where he competed for playing time at second base with Harry Steinfeldt, Heinie Peitz and others.

Fox was at College of the Holy Cross at the same time as a number of other future major leaguers: Doc Powers, Doc Curley, John Pappalau and Chief Sockalexis.

Bill is known to have played in the Connecticut State League in 1895 and in between his two major league stints played for Toronto and the Rome (NY) Romans. After his major league days he played in the minors through 1913, primarily with Midwestern teams.

He managed six years in the minors, at Lincoln, Omaha, Racine and Grand Forks.

He is not to be confused with near-contemporary Bill Foxen.
