Bert Wood Abbey (November 11, 1869 – June 11, 1962) was a Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher.

Baseball debut

Abbey first began playing baseball as a freshman in college when he recruited fellow students to form the Vermont Catamounts (UVM) team.[1] At UVM, he made the baseball and training program progress fast with his presence as player, coach and captain. He graduated in 1891 from UVM and the year after, Abbey's team at the University won almost every game they played including games against professional teams.[2]

Major League career

After his graduation, Abbey was drafted by the Washington Senators where he pitched 14 games before being sold to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was then sent down to the farm team in Macon, Georgia. In 1893, the Chicago Colts bought his services and he remained there until 1895 when he moved to the Brooklyn Grooms

Abbey remained with the team (renamed the Bridegrooms) for one more season. His last game was played on September 23, 1896, in Montreal, Quebec.

Abbey died at the age of 92 in Essex Junction, Vermont less than a year after suffering a heart attack.[3] He is buried at the Mountain View Cemetery in Essex Junction.[4]

He was posthumously inducted into UVM's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1969.[1]
