Jim Conway played just 3 seasons in the Major League American Association. Beginning in 1884 he put together a 3-9 record with the Brooklyn Atlantics, and followed that up with just 12 innings pitched in 1885 with the Philadelphia Athletics before hurting his arm.
He didn’t pitch again until 1889 when he hooked up with the American Association Kansas City Cowboys. Conway went 19-19 for the Cowboys, pitching over 300 innings in the process. He “surprisingly” reinjured his arm and never returned to the Major League level.
Jim Conway passed away at the age of 54 in December 1912, in Clifton Heights, PA.
Because of his surly disposition during his playing days, he was nicknamed “Dark Days”. Jim “Dark Days” Conway. I salute your awesome nickname with this post.
