Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as a right-handed pitcher for 13 seasons (1899 to 1911). Broke in with the Louisville Cyclones, playing with them in their last year before the team merged with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1900. As a rookie he pitched a 7-0 no-hitter for the Cyclones against the New York Giants on May 25, 1899. In 1900 his 20 wins helped the Pirates to the Chronicle-Telegraph Cup Championship. (which was held that year only). In that Series, he won Game 3 by pitching a 10-0 shutout against the challenger Brooklyn Superbas (Dodgers). It was the only game the Pirates won, and they lost the Series 3 Games to 1. In 1903 he again helped the Pirates to the National League Championship, and made baseball history by pitching in and winning the very first World Series game (October 1, 1903). In that game, against the Boston Pilgrims (Red Sox), Deacon Phillippe outduelled the legendary Cy Young to claim the victory. He would go on to pitch in 5 of the 8 Series Games, wining 3 and losing 2, including the 3-0 loss that clinched the Series for the Red Sox. In 1909 he would finally be a Champion as a member of the Pirates team that defeated Ty Cobb’s Detroit Tigers in the World Series 4 games to 3, although his only appearances were two relief stints in two of the Pirates losses. He won 20 or more games in 6 of his 13 years, and finished with career totals of 189 Wins-109 Losses, 929 Strikeouts, and a 2.59 career Earned Run Average. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
