Early Life and Education
Jack was known for his wicked sense of humor throughout his life.

Ralph Glaze, owner of the New York Giants, saw Meyers play semipro baseball in the Southwest between 1907 and 1908. When Ralph noticed Meyers, he sent him into major league play that autumn as one of two catchers, then gradually becoming their regular one for most of 1909. Meyers soon outshone both players by throwing and hitting well enough that he became one of the league’s premier catchers.
Meyer served in several public service roles at SDSU before joining the faculty as an assistant professor of communication studies. As such, he teaches various public speaking courses, coaches the speech and debate team, and conducts research into video game narratives.
On April 16, 1955 at New York’s Polo Grounds, he made his major league debut and only managed three innings before being ejected after an argument with an umpire led to him being removed from the game in the corridor leading towards locker rooms.
