Edward Charles "Jumbo" Cartwright (October 6, 1859 – September 3, 1933) was a professional first baseman in Major League Baseball in 1890 and from 1894 to 1897. He played for the St. Louis Browns of the American Association (predecessor of the current St. Louis Cardinals) and the Washington Senators of the National League.
Cartwright is most famous for having seven RBI in one inning, accomplished with the Browns on September 23, 1890; his record would stand for 109 years until it was broken by Fernando Tatís of the Cardinals on April 23, 1999. Cartwright also hit for the cycle on September 30, 1895, while playing for the Senators against the Boston Beaneaters.
