John Charles McGeachey (1864-1930) played for six teams in six years, 1886-91. He broke in with the Detroit Wolverines and closed his ML tenure with the Boston Reds. In between, he played OF for the St Louis Maroons/Indianapolis Hoosiers, Brooklyn Ward’s Wonders and the Philadelphia Athletics. McGeachey’s time with the Reds was memorable as he helped the club to become only the second franchise in ML history to win back-to-back pennants in different leagues, matching Brooklyn’s accomplishment the year before.
- Boston had won the Players’ League title in 1890 and the American Association pennant in ’91, making them unique in winning championships in each year of their team’s existence
