Formerly known as just Lackey, also is known as Bill William D., Bill Lackey or William Lackey. Batting side and throwing arm are unknown.

Lackey was a 19 years old amateur pitcher when he debuted with the Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association. On October 2, 1890 he made a relief appearance, giving up four runs (two earned) on one hit and three walks while striking out one in 2.0 innings of work. He posted a 9.00 ERA and did not have a decision. As a batter, he was hitless in his only at-bat, and never appeared in a major league game again.
