George Hildebrand was an American League umpire from 1913 to 1934; he played outfield in the California League with the Sacramento Senators where he taught teammate Elmer Stricklett how to throw a spitball when Hildebrand joined the club in July 1902. He had learned about the spitball from Frank Corridon, who was apparently the inventor, and the two of them refined the concept together. Stricklett set a minor league record that season for games won with a record of 27-22 and was a 20-game winner with the American Association Milwaukee Brewers in 1904 (20-11).
