Biographical Information[edit]

Conrad "Nick" Carter pitched 14 times with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1908, compiling a 2-5, 2.97 record in 60 2/3 innings. He was the Opening Day starter on a staff that included future Hall of Famers Chief Bender and Eddie Plank, allowing just a run in 11 2/3 innings against the New York Highlanders on April 14th. Naturally, that was good enough to lose, 1-0.

Nick was nearly 29 when he made his debut with the Athletics, after having played in the minors since 1899. While stats for his minor league career are not complete, he apparently played from 1899 to 1915.

A biography of Nick Carter states he was born in a mansion to a family whose wealth was declining, and that he pitched for the high school team at Phillips Exeter Academy. He then pitched for the University of Virginia, even after he had played in the minors. [1]
