Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Fritz Buelow, born in Germany, played nine seasons in the majors. While he was a weak hitter, he was considered a good defensive player.

Buelow played in the American League during its inaugural year as a major league in 1901. Although he never received more than 255 at bats in a season, he was the first-string catcher in both 1901 with the Detroit Tigers and 1905 with the Cleveland Naps, at a time when catchers did not play as many innings. He also umpired one game in 1906. Buelow later played for the Minneapolis Millers in 1907 and 1908.

Charlie Buelow, born in Iowa and apparently no relation to Fritz, was also in the majors in 1901. Charlie was an infielder in the National League.
