Otis Edgar Clymer (January 27, 1876 – February 27, 1926) was an American Major League Baseball player who was primarily a right fielder for four teams during his six season career.[1] Born in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, he played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Washington Senators, Chicago Cubs, and the Boston Braves from 1905 to 1913.[1]

Clymer's most notable moment came on October 2, 1908, when he hit for the cycle.[2] When he left Major League baseball, he played for the minor league Minneapolis Millers of the American Association from 1911 to 1914.[3]

After his baseball career, which was hampered by constant leg injuries, Clymer became a car dealer.[4][5] He died at age 50 from an automobile accident in St. Paul, MN.[6] He is interred at Willow River Cemetery in Hudson, WI.[1]
