Thomas Joseph Needham (April 17, 1879 – December 14, 1926) was an Irish-born Major League Baseball player from 1904 to 1914. His first four years were with the Boston Beaneaters (later the Boston Braves). Needham hit poorly, hitting below .200 twice. After a brief appearance with the New York Giants in 1908, Needham played his last 6 years with the Chicago Cubs. Still, Needham hit badly, hitting over .200 just once. Despite hitting under .200 8 of his 11 seasons, Needham's career average was .209, due to his first season average of .260. Needham died in his home in Steubenville, Ohio at the age of 47.
