Biographical Information[edit]

Tom Fleming had a long pro career, coming to the majors in three unconnected seasons, 1899, 1902 and 1904. Born in Philadelphia, PA, in two of those three years he was with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Tom began his minor league career in 1894 in the Pennsylvania State League. He was a veteran minor leaguer by the time he came to the 1899 New York Giants for 22 games, hitting .208. Back in the minors for 1900-01, he came up with the 1902 Phillies for five games, hitting a good .375. He was with the Colorado Springs Millionaires in 1903, hitting .338, before returning to the majors with the 1904 Phillies, although he spent most of 1904 with the Sioux City Soos. He continued in the minors through 1910.

The minor league database has large gaps for him, but it appears he hit with very little power. He played outfield, apparently mostly center field, although he pitched at least 13 games, mostly near the beginning and end of his pro career.

He managed in the minors at least five different seasons.
