Career highlights and awards

William Martin Carrick (September 5, 1873 – March 7, 1932) was an American pitcher in Major League Baseball. He was nicknamed Doughnut Bill.[1]

Baseball career

Listed at 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) and 150 pounds (68 kg), Carrick batted and threw right-handed. He played for the New York Giants and the Washington Senators in a span of five seasons from 1898 through 1902.

Carrick's best pitch was the curveball.[2] At one point during the 1901 season, he lost seventeen consecutive decisions.[3]

Later years

Following his major league career, Carrick continued to be active in professional ball in the minor leagues, while pitching for the Seattle Siwashes (1903), Toledo Mud Hens (1903), Fall River Indians (1905), Newark Sailors (1906–1907), and the New Haven Blues/New Haven Black Crows (1908/1909). He then managed for New Haven (renamed the Prairie Hens) in 1910.[4]
