A member of Cap Anson's dominant Chicago White Stockings teams of the 1880s, Larry Corcoran had five seasons where he was a pivotal contributor to the team.  From 1880 to 1884, Corcoran won 170 Games and was rare that he was a switch-pitcher, meaning he could alternate throwing arms.  Corcoran made history in 1882 when he became the first pitcher to throw a second no-hitter in his career, which was the same season where he led the National League in ERA, WHIP, and H/9/.  Like so many of his era, the heavy workload took its toll, and he had a dead arm by 1885 and was out of the game two years later.
