[edit] Biographical Information

LarryCorcoran.jpg

Larry Corcoran was an ambidextrous pitcher who alternated arms for two innings of a game on May 9, 1889. Larry Corcoran was one of four major league pitchers to throw a no-hitter in 1880, his rookie season. He was the first major-leaguer to throw more than one no-hitter, and he was also also the first pitcher to have thrown three no-hitters in a career (in 1880, 1882, and 1884). He started his career 22-3 - this was the MLB record for wins in someone's first 25 decisions until Alfredo Aceves broke the mark 131 years later.

He did some minor-league umpiring following his playing days, but his umpiring career - and his life - was cut short by the kidney inflammation known as Bright's Disease. Larry Corcoran died of Bright's Disease in 1891.

His brother Mike Corcoran pitched one game in 1884.
