He followed the team to Richmond, VA the next year; for the Richmond Climbers he batted .178/~.247/.178, failing to collect a single extra-base hit in 174 at-bats. Briefly with Baltimore in 1918 he went 3 for 12 at the plate and pitched two innings. He was 0 for 1 for the 1922 club, completing his professional baseball career. Jack Jr. was the father of Jack Dunn III.
