Cy Barger (May 18, 1885 - September 23, 1964) was a right-handed starting pitcher and left-handed batter who played in the American League for the New York Highlanders (1906-07); in the National League with the Brooklyn teams Superbas (1910) and Dodgers (1911-12), and for the Pittsburgh Rebels (1914-15) in the Federal League.
A native of Jamestown, Kentucky, Barger was a dead ball era pitcher who also played first base and shortstop as well as the outfield. He debuted on August 30, 1906. With the Highlanders, he had a 0-0 record with only 11 innings pitched in two seasons.
In 1909, Berger led Rochester to the Eastern League title with 23 wins and a minuscule 1.00 of earned run average. Again in the majors with the 1910 Dodgers, Berger enjoyed a career-year with 15 victories and a 2.88 ERA, winning 11 games the following season. With the Rebels, he won 19 games from 1914-15.
Barger compiled a career 46-63 record with 297 strikeouts and a 3.56 ERA in 975.2 innings. He played his final game on October 2, 1915.
Cy Berger died in Columbia, Kentucky, at the age of 79.
