Biographical Information[edit]

Jack Coveney was the first of five major leaguers (through 2019) to come out of St. Anselm College. Although he had only 14 at-bats (2-for-14), with the 1903 St. Louis Cardinals, that remains the most of St. Anselm'ers. Jack also played 14 seasons in the minors and managed a couple years, including at New Bedford in the 1907 New England League. The Waycross Weekly Journal of July 24, 1914, called him "popular" and a "tower of strength" for the Waycross Grasshoppers, for whom he was player-manager.
