Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Charles "Jack" Rowe (December 8, 1856 - April 25, 1911) was an American baseball player. Rowe was born in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, in 1911. He first played baseball under Tom Loftus with the Peoria Reds in 1878. In 1879, Rowe and his brother, Dave Rowe, signed with the Rockford team in the newly-formed Northwestern League. At Rockford, Rowe earned a reputation as one of the best hitters and bare-handed catchers in the game. After the Northwestern League folded in early July 1878, Rowe signed with the Buffalo Bisons of the National League. He played in eight games for Buffalo in 1879, batting .353 in 38 plate appearances.show more
