From the South Side of Chicago, Brown was a basketball and baseball player around the Chicago area. He played for various professional basketball teams, including the ABL's Chicago Bruins. He was also a first baseman with the Moline Plow Boys in the D-Class Missouri Valley League. He was signed by the Cincinnati Reds in September of 1925 and was to report to the team for the remainder of the season. On September 11, 1925, he appeared in an exhibition games for the Reds when they travelled to Frankfort, Kentucky, to play a local semi-pro team. He joined the Moline Plow Boys in the D-Class Missouri Valley League in 1926, playing first base for them for a few seasons.

Brown signed with the Bruins on January 23, 1928.

Disappears from my radar after that.
