William Johnston Clymer (December 18, 1873 – December 26, 1936) nicknamed "Derby Day Bill", was an American professional baseball player who played three games for the 1891 Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association (at the age of 17).[1] In 11 at-bats as a Major League player, he did not collect a hit, but did have one base on balls and one stolen base.[2] He went on to play 18 seasons in the minor leagues (1891–1906)[3] and was a minor league manager for approximately 29 years (spanning 1898–1932).[1] He was the second minor league manager with more than 2,000 wins.[1] Clymer died at the age of 63 in his hometown of Philadelphia, and is interred at North Cedar Hill Cemetery.[2]
