Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert Matthew Byrne (December 31, 1884 - December 31, 1964) was a third baseman in Major League Baseball. From 1907 through 1917, he played for the St. Louis Cardinals (1907-1909), Pittsburgh Pirates (1909-1913), Philadelphia Phillies (1913-1917) and Chicago White Sox (1917). Byrne batted and threw right-handed. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri. The speedy Byrne was a defensive stalwart with excellent range. He started his major league career with the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1907 season. Acquired by the Pittsburgh Pirates in late August 1909, he contributed for his new club down the stretch, including allowing Tommy Leach to stay in center field. Used mainly in the leadoff spot, Byrne made just two errors while hitting .256 with eight stolen bases.
