Joe Quinn

Quinn was the first Australian-born major leaguer; there wasn’t another until Craig Shipley was called up by the Dodgers in 1986. Originally an “Onion,” as Union Association players were called, Quinn became a fine second baseman who changed teams 11 times in his 17 ML seasons. He managed Cleveland for most of 1899 after Frank Robison, who owned both clubs, sent the team’s best players to the Cardinals. Cleveland finished 20-134 with the lowest winning percentage (.130) in ML history. In the off-season, Quinn was a mortician.
