1B/OF Ham Patterson played for two teams in the 1909 American League. He also was in the minors for 15 seasons, and managed in the minors for ten seasons, of which five were with the Dallas Giants (known by several names during his time managing them). In 1908, with the Pueblo Indians, he had the highest batting average on the team, which probably led to his getting time in the majors the following year as a 31-year-old rookie.
He was the brother of infielder Pat Patterson, who was 20 years his junior.
