Bill Carrigan was a catcher for 10 years in the major leagues, and also managed for 7 seasons, all with the Boston Red Sox. He was on the pennant-winning 1912 Red Sox team and was player-manager of the 1915 and 1916 teams that won the World Series. He retired to his hometown of Lewiston, ME from managing after the 1916 World Series and started a chain of movie theatres around New England, which he eventually sold for a large profit; at the time, he had just married and his first child had just been born and he considered that a life in baseball was incompatible with raising a family. He was convinced to return to the dugout in 1927, but the team was no longer competitive, and the style of play had changed considerably from the time of Carrigan's heyday. He stayed for three seasons and retired for good. Carrigan later coached at Bates College in 1933-1934. He had a successful career in banking following that second retirement.
He is one of the few catchers to catch three no-hitters in the majors.
