Career highlights and awards
Otis Edgar Clymer (January 27, 1876 – February 27, 1926) was an American Major League Baseball player who was primarily a right fielder for four teams during his six season career. Born in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, he played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Washington Senators, Chicago Cubs, and the Boston Braves from 1905 to 1913.
Clymer's most notable moment came on October 2, 1908, when he hit for the cycle. When he left Major League baseball, he played for the minor league Minneapolis Millers of the American Association from 1911 to 1914.
After his baseball career, which was hampered by constant leg injuries, Clymer became a car dealer. He died at age 50 from an automobile accident in St. Paul, MN. He is interred at Willow River Cemetery in Hudson, WI.
