Biographical Information[edit]

Michael Driscoll pitched one game in the majors with the Philadelphia Athletics, on July 6, 1916. At age 23, he went 5 innings against the Detroit Tigers, giving up 3 earned runs and 2 unearned runs. He did not start the game, but entered in the 3rd inning after Tom Sheehan had given up 3 runs in the first couple of innings. After Driscoll pitched his stint, Walt Whittaker pitched the last two innings of the game. It was also Whittaker's only major league appearance.

Driscoll faced 24 batters, which means he faced Harry Heilmann, Ty Cobb and Bobby Veach of the Tigers more than once.

Michael had been at the University of Maine during 1911-1916.

"Connie Mack tried to farm out Whittaker, the Tufts College pitcher, and pitcher Driscoll of the University of Maine, but they declined to go to the minors. They have quit professional baseball." - Sporting Life, July 29, 1916
