Adam Anthony Comorosky (December 9, 1905 – March 2, 1951) was an American former Major League Baseball player. He 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."
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 46.
