Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Oliver Barclay (May 16, 1876 in Millville, Pennsylvania - April 3, 1909 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a former Major League Baseball player. He played for the St. Louis Cardinals and later the Boston Beaneaters. He was also an early professional football player-coach for the Greensburg Athletic Association. He was nicknamed "The Rose" for his concern with his looks and his eye for the ladies. Barclay also invented the first-ever football helmet. Barclay was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 17, 1902, with the St. Louis Cardinals. He played for the Cardinals until he was sold to the Boston Beaneaters on September 11, 1904. He would play for Boston until his release from the team on May 22, 1905.show more
