Hardin Barry (March 28, 1891 – November 5, 1969), nicknamed "Finn", was an American Major League Baseball pitcher for one season prior to a lifetime career in law.

History[edit]

Born in Susanville, California,[1] he started his career at Santa Clara University then called Santa Clara College.[2] After graduation in 1912[3] he had a one-season career in the majors for the Philadelphia Athletics during the 1912 season.[1] He went directly to the majors with no minor career, yet played in only three games, earning a 7.62 Earned Run Average (ERA).[4]

He studied law under his father,[3] and on March 1, 1918 he won his first case at Judge Koken's court at Standish.[5] He worked as an attorney in Susanville.[6] He was considered the "Dean of Lassen County Bar"[3] when he died in Carson City, Nevada on November 5, 1969 during a visit to a daughter.[3]
