  1. Frank Corridon who played for the Phillies 1904-1909 should have gotten into Cooperstown. He played a seventeen inning game Sept 2, 1908 Phillies defeat Brooklyn, outpitched McIntrye and Rucker. Here is what one newspaper account was:
    news story dated: September 3, 1908. Headlines read: Phillies 3, Brooklyn 2 – Visitors Tie the Score in the Ninth and for Seventeen Innings “Murrayites” and “Superbas” Are Locked in Sensational Battle. The “Fiddler” Pitches Magnificent Ball and in Final Round with Two Out, His Fourth Hit of the Game Scores “Kitty” Bransfield from Third.

    Exerpt from article reads:
    Once upon a time in the small State of Rhode Island there was born a boy whose mother planned a great future for him as a violinist. He preferred the great national game of baseball however. That youngster was Mr. Corridon, better known as “Fiddler” who not only pitched 17 innings against Brooklyn yesterday afternoon, but won his own game by a single, which scored the necessary tally for the Phillies.

    Now the situation was serious. Several enthusiastic “fans” forgot to breathe regularly when Dooin stepped to the plate. But Charles has been very apt with his stick when hits were needed of late and Mr. Rucker handed him a free ticket to first. That did not end the agony, however, for the “violin virtuosos” Corridon, still had a chance to use his new bat. Did he do it? All that is necessary to know is that he sent a hot one safely between Alperman and Jordan and “Kitty” made the third run, which won the game.

    Every mother’s son of the 6,045 stood up ad cheered madly as Mr. Corridon walked across to the bench to get his jacket and other belongings. And it’s not strange that a smile overspread the “Fiddler’s” countenance. That smile became broader when “Silent John” Titus rushed for him and gave him a shake which almost put his salary hand out of commission. But that was pardonable too.

    We are proud of what out grandfather achieved in his life, and his days with the Phillies were some of the happiest days of his life. From his early days in Providence, Rhode Island playing for the Grays and Norwich, Connecticut as a young ballplayer – where he lead both teams to championships in 1901 to later playing in the National League, he is worthy of recognition for his contribution to Phillies. After his time in the major leagues, he went on to coach and manage other baseball teams.
