Biographical Information[edit]

George Frederick "Pete" Lohman had 126 plate appearances with the Washington Statesmen 1891, an American Association team in the last year of the Association's existence. Pete played mostly catcher. He was released by the Statesmen on July 30th and soon signed by the Philadelphia Athletics, but did not appear for them in 1891.

Pete had played in the minors in the western part of the USA before coming to the majors, and afterwards went back west. In 1893, with the minor league Los Angeles Angels, he hit .306 with 16 triples on a team full of former and future major leaguers. He ended his minor league career playing several years in Oakland and Fresno, but before that he was on teams in the Midwest and Canada for several years. In 1897 he hit .312 with 36 doubles for the Des Moines Prohibitionists.

Pete had begun managing in 1894, and would eventually compile eight seasons as a manager, half of it with teams in Oakland. He was usually a player-manager, even at age 39 when he appeared in 39 games.

Suffered a nervous breakdown in 1905 while catching and managing for Oakland, and retired at the advice of physicians.
