Rollie Hubert Zeider was a professional baseball player. An infielder, he played nine seasons in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Chicago Chi-Feds/Chicago Whales in the Federal League from 1914–15, and lastly the Chicago Cubs. He is one of only a few players to play for three different Chicago teams in his career, and one of two to do it in the 20th century. He is the only player to hit home runs for all three Chicago major league teams in the twentieth century. Along with Dutch Zwilling he is the only 20th century player to play in the same city in three different major leagues: American League, Federal League, and the National League. Strangely, Zeider contributed to another odd record along with Zwilling. The 1916 Cubs were one of the few teams in history, and the most recent until 1999, to have three players whose last names begin with “Z”: Zeider, Zwilling, and Heinie Zimmerman.
