Dick Cotter came out of Manhattan College to play catcher in the big leagues. He had attended the college from 1909 to 1911, and made his major league debut with the Philadelphia Phillies on August 17, 1911. In his two seasons in the majors, he hit for a decent average - .283 and then .278 - and got some walks as well, as his lifetime on-base percentage was .357. However, he hit only two extra base hits his whole career - two triples.
