Ed Wheeler was a bit of a puzzle. He played on the Brooklyn Superbas for all or most of the 1902 season, but hit only .125 with no extra base hits. The team as a whole hit .256, and Willie Keeler hit .333. Defensively, he made 19 errors in 26 games in the infield.
Wheeler was one year older than teammate Jimmy Sheckard.
