A first baseman who had his best season in 1902, when he hit .314/.350/.440 with 46 extra base hits in 120 games for the Washington Senators, Scoops Carey was the first major leaguer out of West Virginia. Max Carey and Tom Carey are also sometimes called Scoops Carey, no doubt after the first Scoops Carey who had good fielding numbers while seeing time in four seasons between 1895 and 1903. He was filmed in a "short" in 1898 while playing first base in the minors. The movie is called The Ball Game. He also played for Minneapolis in 1898.
