William Henry O’Kelleher Jr., better known as “Wee Willie” Keeler, was born on March 3, 1872.

Willie was the son of William Sr. and Mary Kelleher (née Kiley), of County Cork.

Standing 5-foot-4 and weighing 140 lbs, Keeler used his 46 oz. bat to spray the ball around the field. His motto was, “Keep your eye on the ball and hit ’em where they ain’t!”
