~Jack Hardy 1877–1921 (Cubs 1907)
One of the most obscure members of the first World Series champion Cubs team (1907), Hardy played in exactly one game for Chicago. The catcher went 1 for 4, with a single and a strikeout. He got a few more cups of coffee in the big leagues with Cleveland (his hometown team) and the Washington Senators, but played the majority of his time in the minor leagues. His longest stint was with Montreal. Hardy died in 1921 at the age of 44.
