Biographical Information[edit]

Bunny Fabrique was the backup shortstop behind Ivy Olson for the first half of the 1917 season for the Brooklyn Robins, at a time when Zack Wheat and Casey Stengel patrolled the outfield and Rube Marquard was the star pitcher.

He was also with the Toledo Mud Hens in 1917.

The Oswego Daily Palladium for June 25, 1917 carried a blurb stating that Fabrique, a former Providence player, had been released by the Brooklyn team - he "started out at a .400 gait, but costly fielding errors affected his play and he couldn't get his nerve back".

He managed the Vicksburg Hill Billies for parts of 1926 and 1927.

He is also reported to possibly be a relative of King Louis XVI, though SABR says this is unlikely.
