Eddie Eayrs graduated from Brown University in 1916 after having attended previously from 1909 to 1913. He later became Brown's baseball coach from 1942 to 1948.
Eayrs was both a pitcher and an outfielder. While he came up in 1913 solely as a pitcher, in 1920 and in 1921 he both pitched and played outfield. As a pitcher he was not particularly effective (except in his first brief cup of coffee, and even then he gave up several unearned runs), but as a hitter in 1920 he hit .328 and had a .410 on-base percentage. Although it was the lively ball era, the 1920 Boston Braves hit only .260, and Eayrs was the only player on the team who hit over .300.
