C. Phillippe of the Pittsburg Nationals. (Deacon Phillippe or Charles Louis Phillippe, originally spelled Phillippi (1872-1952). Color portrait of Deacon Phillippe with the Pittsburg Pirates or Pittsburgh Pirates. A pirate is in the top left corner and 'Pirates' is in the top right. Verso: Charles Phillippe. 'Deacon' Charles Phillippe is one of the most reliable members of the Pirates' pitching staff. He came to Pittsburg in 1900, having been brought over from Louisville with Fred Clarke and other stars by President Dreyfuss. In 1901, 1902 and 1903 he was one of the corps of twirlers that helped Clarke laud the Pirates at the head of the National League. He has been a steady player in all senses of the word, and in his great control may be judged from the fact that in 1909 and 1910, while taking part in 53 games, he only gave 23 bases on balls.
