Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frank Joseph Corridon (November 25, 1880 - February 21, 1941) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for three different teams between the 1904 and 1910 seasons. Listed at 6' 0" 170 lb., Corridon was a switch-hitter and threw right-handed. He was born in Newport, Rhode Island. The invention of the spitball has been credited to several pitchers. Corridon is one of them. He claimed to have originated the pitch while playing for the Providence Grays of the International League, when discovered that a ball which had landed in a puddle and was wet on one side did an unexpected effect on its flight when he threw it.
