Featured Player: Mike Kekich

Tonight's guest is pitcher Michael Dennis Kekich.
Kekich was born on April 2, 1945 in San Diego, California and was signed by the Los Angelas Dodgers in the 1964 amateur draft. On December 4, 1986, he was traded to the New York Yankees for Andy Kosco and spent five years there.
He was a primary starter only to give up many decisions to the bullpen. His ERA with the Yankees was in the fours and posted a 3.70 mark in his 1972 campaign.
He has career highs on 10 wins in 1972, 93 strike outs in 1971, and WHIP of 1.414 in '72, all with the Yankees. He even recorded his only triple in 1972.
On June 12, 1973, he was traded to the Cleveland Indians and released the following year. He returned to baseball and signed as a free agent with the Texas Rangers.
On October 1, 1977, he announced his retirement. He would be compared to Tony Saunders from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, however, never broke his arm.
