Biography

Born in Rural Retreat, Virginia to Andrew Phillippe and Jane Margaret Hackler, Phillippe first appeared in pro baseball with the National League's Louisville Colonels in 1899. He had a 21–17 record that year, which was highlighted by a no-hitter in just his seventh career game.

The Colonels disbanded after the season, before which owner Barney Dreyfuss shrewdly moved a number of Louisville players, including Phillippe, to the Pirates, a team Dreyfuss co-owned. Phillippe won 20 games for four straight seasons as the Pirates won three straight National League titles between 1901 and 1903.
