Biographical Information[edit]

Ned Pettigrew had a long career in baseball but was only briefly in the majors. At age 32, he was in the Federal League for a couple games with the 1914 Buffalo Buffeds, whose best-known players were Hal Chase and Frank Delahanty, both a year younger than Pettigrew.

He was part of the 1921 Independence Producers who won 103 games and lost only 38. He led the team in doubles and was second on the team in home runs. He had a busy season - he served as acting manager for a while during the time when the regular manager had a broken leg, and was also suspended very briefly and then reinstated. See 1921 Producers

Pettigrew started in semi-pro ball in 1902, and was involved for many decades in baseball. He was a manager in 1923-24, and one of his pitchers was Carl Hubbell. Later in life he was a scout.
