Third baseman Lenny Burrell played in the minor leagues from 1904 to 1915. He hit .304 in 77 games between two clubs in his second campaign, but never hit better than .284 in a season after that, and he often hit below .250. His .284 mark came in his final campaign; if not for a .091 stretch in 33 at-bats for the Syracuse Stars that year, he would have broken .300 again, as he batted .308 in 266 ABs for the Hornell Maple Leafs. He was one of two managers for the Maple Leafs that season, replacing Joe Prozeller.
He was taken by the Chicago White Sox from the Utica Pent-Ups in the 1908 Rule V Draft.
Following his playing career, he served as a steel salesman in the eastern USA.
