He also played 13 seasons in the minors.
He was apparently a witty man who could also sing, serving on a team singing quartet. The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract mentions an occasion where, after making a put-out, Charlie Grimm sang loudly to Tierney, "Have we got him, Mr. Tierney?", to which Tierney replied in song, "Absolutely, Mr. Grimm". It was apparently a take-off on a vaudeville routine.
In 1923, Tierney played 92 road games. This is a record for the 1920s: it is not known if it is the all-time record.
