Career highlights and awards

John Joseph "Joe" Gerhardt (February 14, 1855 – March 11, 1922), also known as "Move Up Joe",[1] was an American Major League Baseball player from Washington, D.C. who played mainly as a second baseman over a 15 season career that spanned from 1873 to 1891. He played in 1078 games in a well-travelled baseball career that saw him play for 11 different teams.[1]

Gerhardt was a below-average hitter, compiling a career batting average of .227, but he was a good fielder. He led his league in second basemen assists twice and range factor three times.

He became a player-manager on two different occasions; one in 1883 for the Louisville Colonels, and the other in 1890 for the St. Louis Browns. His managerial record totaled 72 wins against 61 losses.[2]

Gerhardt died in Middletown, Orange County, New York, at the age of 67. He was buried at Prospect Hill Cemetery in Washington, D.C.[2]
