Adam Anthony Comorosky (December 9, 1905 – March 2, 1951) was an American former Major League Baseball player. Comorosky started working in the coal mines of Swoyersville, Pennsylvania, at the age of 12, where he worked as a breaker boy. His lesson from the experience was that it "teach[es] you values. If you're ever lucky enough to get a good job outside, you value that job." His best season in the majors came in 1930, when he drove in 119 runs, hit 47 doubles, and led the National League with 23 triples, a total that has not been surpassed since. His health declined the following year, and he was never the same ballplayer. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds November 1933 along with Tony Piet for Red Lucas and Wally Roettger. His minor league career included stops with the Williamsport Grays in 1926 and the Minneapolis Millers in 1936 After his baseball career was over, he owned a store in the town of Swoyersville, Pennsylvania, until his death at the age of 45.
