Thomas Joseph Tucker (October 28, 1863 - October 22, 1935) was a first baseman in Major League Baseball who played with six different teams between 1887 and 1899. Listed at 5' 11", 165 lb., Tucker was a switch-hitter and threw right-handed. Tucker was born in Holyoke, Massachusetts, where he started his baseball career playing for the Springfield and Newark clubs. He was a flashy first baseman in an era when using two hands was normal, making one-handed scoops of wild throws and pick-ups with his small glove, in contrast to the big-sized gloves employed by today's first basemen. He entered the majors in 1887 with the Baltimore Orioles of the American Association, playing for them three years before joining the National League with the Boston Beaneaters (1890-1897), Washington Senators (1897), Brooklyn Bridegrooms (1898), St. Louis Browns (1898) and Cleveland Spiders (1899). His most productive season came in 1889 with Baltimore, when he led the AA hitters with a .372 batting average and 196 hits. In a 13-season career, Tucker was a .290 hitter (1882-for-6479) with 42 home runs and 932 RBI in 1687 games, including 1084 runs, 240 doubles, 85 triples, 352 stolen bases, and a .364 on-base percentage.

Tucker died in Montague, Massachusetts, just six days short of his 72nd birthday.
