Thomas C. Noyes

Thomas C. Noyes (c. 1868 – August 21, 1912) was the co-owner of the Washington Senators of the American League with Ban Johnson from 1904 through 1919.

Noyes was the part-owner and publisher of the Washington Star when he bought the club from Ban Johnson and Fred Postal. The team was an also-ran for most of his tenure, the only highlight being the acquisition of Walter Johnson in 1907. Things really didn't turn around until Clark Griffith took over as manager in 1912.

He died suddenly in 1912 of pneumonia at a Washington D.C. hospital. He was 44.[1]

The Senators were sold to a group headed by Griffith in 1919.
