From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walter Lawrence Barbare (August 11, 1891 – October 28, 1965) was a third baseman/shortstop who played for the Cleveland Indians (1914-1916), Boston Red Sox (1918), Pittsburgh Pirates (1919-1920) and Boston Braves (1921-1922). Barbare batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Greenville, South Carolina.

In an eight-season career, Barbare was a .260 hitter with one home run and 156 RBI in 500 games played.

A solid infielder with a strong arm and a light bat, Barbare was a utility man with the Indians, Red Sox and Pirates in a span of six seasons. In 1921 he was sent to the Braves in the same trade that brought star shortstop Rabbit Maranville to Pittsburgh, and he responded with a career-year hitting .302 in 134 games.

Following his retirement as a player, Barbare served as a manager and umpire in the minor leagues.

Barbare died in Greenville, South Carolina at the age of 84.
