Biographical Information[edit]

John Daley, who played for the St. Louis Browns in 1912, was one of the longest-living major leaguers. He lived to be 101 years old.

He was a shortstop with the Browns. It would have been hard for him to win the shortstop job permanently because it was held down by future Hall of Famer Bobby Wallace at the time.

John was born in DuBois, PA in 1887. Tom Daley was also born in DuBois, in 1884, but they are not listed as brothers. There was also a Jud Daley in the majors at the time, but he was from Connecticut.

John is listed as being at Fordham University between 1906 and 1912, and he made his major league debut in July of 1912. He was at Fordham at the same time as Larry Kopf, who also played shortstop in the majors.
