An early pioneer baseball pitcher, Fred Corey worked the pitching mound during baseball’s Dead Ball Era. The right-hander pitched in the majors for six years, 1878-1885, with Providence, Worchester (National League Teams) and with the Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association.
In 1881-1882 Fred Corey pitched for Worchester who finished both seasons in last place for the then 8-team National League. As a fact: Worchester finished the then 84-game schedule with a lousy 16-66 record and then folded its doors due to lack of finances.
In 1883 Fred Corey signed with the Philadelphia Athletics of the newly formed American Association. He posted a solid 10-7 record and competed 15 of 16 starts which helped Philadelphia win the Association title, finishing with a sterling 66-32 record. baseballhistorian.com
