Thomas William Corcoran (January 4, 1869 – June 25, 1960) was an American shortstop in Major League Baseball who competed for the Pittsburgh Burghers (1890), Philadelphia Athletics (1891), Brooklyn Grooms/Brooklyn Bridegrooms (1892–1906), Cincinnati Reds (1897-1906), and the New York Giants (1907).

Tommy Corcoran Career


Corcoran, a native of New Haven, Connecticut, was born Corky and Tommy the Cork. He was described as a hard-working, supple-handed shortstop. His fielding style was likened to that of Hall of Famer Bid McPhee.

Corbetta batted.300 in a season that began in 1894. Early in his career, he was a barehanded fielder, and he was able to make the switch to a glove without difficulty. He was able to field ground balls backhanded and was able to do it effectively. In a nine-inning game, Corcoran set a new ML record for shortstops with 14 assists. (Lave Cross had 15 assists in a 12-inning game in 1897.) Corcoran also ranked in the top ten in the league in at bats seven times.

He started his Major League career with the Pittsburgh Burghers of the Players Association in 1891 and then joined the Philadelphia Athletics in 1892. After the 1896 season, he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Before the 1896 season, he had been out on Brooklyn until the 1896 season but was forced to work again at the start of the 1897 season in order to get a raise on his $10 per day wage. In December 1906, he was moved from Cincinnati to the New York Giants for an undisclosed sum.

Corcoran was released by the Giants in July 1907 and 1908, including the Uniontown Coal Barons. He served as interim manager for the Coal Barons for a while, and the Eastern League and the Jersey City Skeeters were both offered to oversee the Dayton Veterans, whom he turned down.

Corcoran batted.256, with 34 home runs and 1,135 RBIs over his 18-season career. In 8,812 career at-bats, he had a total of 387 stolen bases, scored 1,184 runs, and hit 2,256 runs. He had 2,957 total bases.

"The compensation for good ball players has increased now than it was when I first started playing, but the extractions are larger." Corcoran said later in his playing career that baseball had become more of a trade than it was when he began his career. Baseball was once more or less a lark; now it is a company, and our aim is to prevail."

Corcoran became an umpire after retiring as a player; his umpiring service spanned one season in the Federal League's short-lived third major circuit.

Corcoran had four sons and a daughter. In Plainfield, Connecticut, he died at the age of 91.
