"Croft, late change catcher of the Louisvilles, played second base in excellent style." - Sporting Life, August 5, 1899, about the game Croft played for the Philadelphia Phillies on July 26, after having been released earlier that month by the Louisville Colonels
Harry Croft played outfield and second base in seven games in the National League in 1899 and 1901. Although the quote above refers to him being a "change catcher", and while he did play some catcher in the minors, he never actually caught during his limited time in the majors. Harry was at Niagara University from 1895-1897. His time there overlapped with that of Bill Friel, Shad Barry and Matt Broderick. He played in the New York State League at least five seasons. He is not to be confused with Harry Craft, an outfielder from a later era.
