Biographical Information[edit]

Dorsey Riddlemoser pitched one game for the Washington Senators in 1899, giving up four earned runs in two innings. Later that same year, Shady Bill Leith also pitched one game for the same team, giving up four earned runs in two innings. Not a single pitcher on the team had a winning record, but Riddlemoser and Leith had the highest ERA's.

However, both Riddlemoser and Leith are redeemed by their wonderful names.

One other major league player has the first name "Dorsey" and the middle name "Lee". That player is Dorsey Lee Carroll, known as Dixie Carroll.

A biography of Dorsey [1] indicates that he was a semipro player and fireman who pitched once in the majors and a few years in the minors. After baseball he was a janitor for years and an active member of the Democratic party.
