Biographical Information[edit]

Lew Carr is the last major leaguer to come from Hobart and William Smith Colleges (through 2019). He played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1901, appearing at shortstop and third base in nine games while hitting .250 (7-for-28). Bones Ely was the regular shortstop for the first part of the season, but did not hit well and was released on July 25th. Carr played his nine games all in a little more than one week's time earlier that month. Honus Wagner, who had not played a single game at shortstop in his first four years in the majors, took over at shortstop.

Carr's minor league career was spent mainly with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Syracuse Stars. He was the head coach at Syracuse from 1910 to 1942.
