Bats Both, Throws Left

The year Mickey Lolich won the World Series
  • Lolich won three games in the 1968 World Series, giving up only five runs in his three complete games, including a 4-1 victory in the seventh game against Bob Gibson on two days' rest. In the sixth inning of that victory, he picked off both Curt Flood and Lou Brock. A notoriously poor hitter (a career .110 average), Lolich cracked his only major league homer in Game Two of the Series off Nelson Briles.

  • Finished second in AL Cy Young balloting in 1971 and third in 1972.

  • Lolich led the league in wins (25) and strikeouts (308) in 1971 and many observers felt he deserved the Cy Young over Vida Blue.

  • 16th all time with 2832 strikeouts. Third all time among lefthanders. He struck out over 200 batters seven times.

  • Three time All Star.

  • 41st all time with 41 career shutouts.

  • Lolich rode motorcycles to work and played the drums in the off season. A real man of the people, when he retired and opened a donut shop, he shocked everybody by running the operation on a daily basis.

"Most people would think that an ex-ballplayer would just have his name on the building, that's all. They think you'd just stop by and say hello on the way to the golf course. It's not that way. What really surprises them (customers) is when they see me coming out of our bakery in the back with flour on my apron."
