Biographical Information[edit]

Jack Scheible made his debut in 1893 with the Cleveland Spiders and spent his final season with the Philadelphia Phillies a year later.

Jack had an amazingly bad day during his one outing with the Phillies in 1894. He faced ten men, getting one out. Six got hits, two got walks and one was hit by a pitch, with the result being ten runs scored, of which seven were earned. The final score was 20 for the Chicago Colts and 4 for the Phillies.

Scheible's obituary in The Youngstown Telegram (August 9, 1897) indicates that he was employed at local flour mills before he began playing ball with minor league teams affiliated with the Tri-State League, Iron & Oil League, and New England League. He continued to play amateur and semi-professional ball after his retirement from the National League. He died in Youngstown, OH from pneumonia, which he contracted shortly after being commissioned to pitch for a game in Erie, PA.
