Biographical Information[edit]

Dennis O'Neill played seven games at first base for the St. Louis Browns in 1893. He got 3 hits and 4 walks in 29 plate appearances.

"O'Neill, the elongated college youth from the Yale base ball faculty, made his debut here in the first Louisville game, but ere this sees print he will be given a return ticket to Boston. O'Neill is a conscientious player, but he is awkward as John L. Sullivan at a McAllister tea, and is hitting lamentably weak. O'Neill played two innings against Baltimore this afternoon and made the bench perspire the rest of the game. Manager Watkins sent Mr. Goodfellow for Perry Werden, who was seated in the grand stand with Long John Healy. Perry hurried to the dressing room and Watkins advised him that his release had been cancelled, ordering him to put on a uniform and get in the game. . . as he walked to the plate the bleachers rang and the grand stand wobbled from the applause. . ." - Sporting Life, July 1, 1893

"O'Neill, formerly of the Yale Law School and the St. Louis teams, is covering first base for the Holyokes." - Sporting Life, August 5, 1893
