Biographical Information[edit]

Ray Demmitt played seven seasons in the majors during the dead ball era. He played all three outfield positions, with most of his work in right field. As a hitter, he was occasionally among the league leaders in doubles, triples and home runs. Most of his major league career was spent with the St. Louis Browns (1910 and 1917-19). In the minors he spent parts of three years with Baltimore and four seasons with Montreal.

Despite being wanted by the St. Louis Browns as well as Columbus (managed by Joe Tinker), Ray Demmitt retired to do farm work in 1920. He did play with the Decatur Staleys, along with George Halas and Joe McGinnity.

"Ray Demmitt and infielder Gerber, often tried and and never retained for any length of time, seem to have come into the promised land, and have done all that was asked of them in brilliant fashion." - Baseball Magazine, August 1918
