Michael Corcoran (October 10, 1858 – October 11, 1927) was a Major League Baseball pitcher who played for the Chicago White Stockings (later renamed Chicago Cubs) of the National League. He started one game for the White Stockings on July 15, 1884 in a game against the Detroit Wolverines at Recreation Park.[1][2] He pitched all 9 innings for a complete game but gave up 16 hits and 14 runs, 4 of which were earned, and was charged with the loss in a 14–0 defeat.[1][2] He also struck out 2 batters.[1] His brother, Larry Corcoran, was also a Chicago White Stockings pitcher, and was Mike's teammate in 1884.[1] Larry Corcoran pitched both the game before and the game after Mike Corcoran's start, giving the Corcoran brothers three consecutive starts.[2]
