Biographical Information[edit]

Tom Lipp pitched one game in the majors in 1897. His minor league career started in 1894 and ran through 1905, usually in the Northeast or the South.

With the 1897 Phillies he was five years older than teammate Nap Lajoie, who was playing his first full year in the majors.

"A good man for State and even National League clubs to keep their eyes on is pitcher Thomas Lipp, of the Hagerstown, Md., Club. He has lost but one game this season -- that against the Philadelphia League team on April 15. He is young, well built, has great speed, and curves, and is a good hitter. . . last season . . . played with . . . Lynchburg . . ." - Sporting Life June 8, 1895
