Matthew Martin McIntyre
Birth: Jun. 12, 1880
New London County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Apr. 2, 1920
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Major League Baseball Player. McIntyre played 10 seasons and over 1000 games in the American League as an outfielder for the Philadelphia A's, Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox. While with the Tigers, he became one of the acknowledged leaders of an anti-Ty Cobb faction that had open disdain toward the Georgia Peach. McIntyre's dislike of Cobb stemmed purely from jealousy. Due to the lack of job security that was prevalent in Major League Baseball at the time, it was natural for a player such as McIntyre to attempt to hold onto his job for dear life. Able to play all three outfield positions, he appeared in 120 games or more on 5 different occasions, with a career high 152 in 1904, his first with Detroit. He also appeared in appeared in 2 World Series for the Tigers. Injuries slowed him down during the 1910 season, after which, the Tigers sold him to the Chicago White Sox on January 12, 1911 for a purchase price of between $2000 and $3000. In his first year on the South Side he batted a career high .323. The next season he dropped to .167 in just 49 games and was sent to the San Francisco Seals of the PCL on September 9, ending his major league career. He later managed Lincoln of the Western League and Mobile of the Southern Association. He managed Mobile until the end of the 1917 campaign, afer which he settled back in Detroit where he was content to play semi-pro ball. He died at 39, of acute nephritis complicated by influenza. Over the Course of his 10-year Major League career, Matty McIntyre accrued a lifetime average of. 269 with 4 homers and 319 RBI with 120 stolen bases.  (bio by: Frank Russo)
