Michael Cornelius Dorgan (October 2, 1853 – April 26, 1909) was an Americanmarker Major League Baseball player from Middletown, Connecticutmarker, who played mainly in right field, but did play infield positions on occasion. His brother, Jerry Dorgan also played Major league Baseball. For three seasons, he was a player-manager, and during this time he had a record of 67 wins and 70 losses.

Known to many people at the time as "The Greatest Ball Player in the country", he chose to retire due to the many injuries he suffered during his playing days. After baseball, he owned and ran a cafe, and for a time, he worked for the American Bridge Company. Mike died at the age 65 due to complications from surgery. Operations were done to repair his knees, but he contracted blood poisoning. He was buried at St. Agnes Cemeterymarker in Syracuse, New Yorkmarker. He was inducted into the Syracuse Hall of Fame in 1999.
