Biographical Information[edit]

Lew Groh got into two games in the major leagues in 1919, when he was 35 years old. He was one of the oldest players in the league but was not the oldest player who appeared for the Philadelphia Athletics that year. Groh played third base in the field.

Lew had a long minor league career. The stats are not complete, but it was at least 14 years long. In 1907 he was the manager of the Lyons team, and in 1920 he managed at Evansville.

He was the brother of Heinie Groh, six years older than Heinie. When Lew came up to the majors, it was not with Heinie's team - Heinie played his entire career in the National League, while Lew came up with Connie Mack's team in the 1919 American League.
