Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder-pitcher Pat Carney played four seasons in the bigs with the Boston Beaneaters. In his best year as a hitter, 1902, he hit .270 in 137 games with 75 runs scored (the team hit .249). In his best year as a pitcher, 1903, he went 4-5, 4.04 in 10 games for a Beaneaters squad whose overall record was 58-80. Hall of Fame teammate Vic Willis was 12-18 that year.

Pat played outfield and pitched in the minors. He had attended Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, and played for the Worcester minor league team from 1900-1901. Carney was the head coach at his alma mater from 1906 to 1909: the most notable player there at the time was Jack Barry, who became part of the $100,000 infield and later coached Holy Cross himself.

Pat later became a doctor (hence the nickname "Doc") and practiced for decades. He was the team physician for the Holy Cross teams and the house doctor for the college.
