Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Billy Weir is one of the most talented pitching prospects I have ever seen in my experience in the major leagues. He is a strong youngster, learns quickly and has plenty on his fast ball. If he continues to show the improvement this year that he showed in the short time he was with the Bees in 1936, I wouldn't trade him for Dizzy Dean ." - Boston Bees Manager (1930-1937) Bill McKechnie (Boston Baseball Writers Association Meeting, Key Note Speaker, February 1937)

William Franklin Weir was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Boston Bees (1936-1939). Billy, his nickname, originally attended Melrose High School, where he pitched a no-hitter. He transferred to Holderness High School (Plymouth, NH) and after reaching the majors, he became their first graduate to reach the big leagues.

Billy Weir went to his first spring training camp in 1937, a year after reaching the majors, because he went from playing baseball at the University of New Hampshire , to the Boston Bees! The Boston Globe (Gerry Moore, 02/25/1937, Page 22) wrote:

Weir Gets First Look at Training Camp

For more reasons than one, the most interesting figure among the advanced guard of Bees who trotted out onto Waterfront Park here this morning to open officially another Boston baseball season was young Mr Billy "Lefty" Weir of the Melrose Weirs.

In the first place, young Mr Weir, who completed his course for a BS degree at University of New Hampshire Jan 22 last, is being counted upon by Manager Bill McKechnie to provide the Boston National League cause with a very helpful portion of left-handed pitching this year.

Secondly, young Mr Weir was observing the 24th anniversary of his natal day.

Thirdly, the young man in question was celebrating this happy occasion with his first look at a major league training camp. In fact, he was having his first look at a baseball training camp of any kind, never previously having seen a minor league baseball game. In spite of all this, our hero already boasts a record of four major league twirling triumphs, two of them shutouts and a third a 4-1 victory over the great Van Lingle Mungo .
