Biographical Information[edit]

Robert Brown played two games for the Baltimore Canaries of the National Association in 1874. A shortstop, he went 0 for 9 in his two games.

Not only is nothing else known about this player, it's not even clear that Robert Brown was his real name. He is listed as Locke in some sources and may in fact have been the same person as umpire William Locke, who worked some games in Baltimore, MD.
