Jayson S. Faatz (October 24, 1860 – April 10, 1923) was an American Major League Baseball player born in Weedsport, New York, who played at first base for three teams during his four-season career.


After his 1884 season, he returned to the minor leagues, which included one season with the Toledo Mud Hens in 1885.[1] In his last season, he was named player-manager for a short time with the 1890 Buffalo Bisons of the Players' League, the only season in the league's existence.[2]

After his baseball days were over, among Jay's post-career occupations included insurance salesman.[3] Jay died in Syracuse, New York at the age of 62, and was buried in the Weedsport Rural Cemetery.[4]
