Biographical Information[edit]

Dan Sweeney played 22 games for the Louisville Colonels in 1895. This was his only time in the major leagues.

Sweeney was one of six players who each played at least ten games in right field for the Colonels. While Sweeney's hitting wasn't terrible, his fielding was not impressive enough. Tom McCreery, one of the six players, ended up getting the right field job in 1896.

Sweeney was five years older than teammate and fellow outfielder Fred Clarke.

Dan's minor league career was from 1888 to 1896, with several years on the west coast.

Standing 5' 5" tall, there were times when the press called him Midget Sweeney. [1]
