John Corriden spent eight seasons in baseball from 1941 to 1948. He appeared in one game with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 20, 1946. Used as a pinch runner, he scored a run.

The son of Red Corriden, a former big league infielder and manager, John spent the rest of his career in the minors with ten teams in seven different leagues. The outfielder was with the Olean Oilers of the Class D Pony League in his initial season in 1941 and hit .326 with ten home runs in 75 games and 307 at bats. This was the first of three seasons he topped .300. The other times came when he hit .313 in 102 games and 377 at bats for the Montreal Royals of the AA (then the highest level of the minors) International League in 1945 and when he .309 for the Jersey City Giants of the now AAA (the old AA having been renamed AAA in 1946) International League in 1947. Corriden ended his minor league career in 1949, having appeared in 641 games and hitting .284. He managed the Salisbury Pirates for part of the 1949 season, succeeded by Mickey O'Neil.
