Biographical Information[edit]

Doughnut Bill Carrick pitched five years in the majors. He was a workhorse, twice leading the league in starts.

Carrick was in the minors for several seasons before coming to the majors. He made a name for himself in 1897 when he went 29-12 for Newark. He pitched three years for the New York Giants and then jumped to the new American League in 1901. With the New York Giants in 1900 he was managed by two future Hall of Famers, Buck Ewing for the first part of the season and then George Davis. He also umpired one National League game that season.
