Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Daly played eight seasons in the major leagues, appearing in 244 games, and had 540 at-bats, 49 runs, 129 hits, 17 doubles, 3 triples, 55 RBI, 5 stolen bases, 25 walks, a .239 batting average, .274 on-base percentage, a .281 slugging percentage, 152 total bases and 8 sacrifice hits.
