Ken Sanders may be best remembered for the number of teams for whom he pitched, the Mets in the National League and eight different American League clubs, including two named the Athletics (Kansas City and Oakland) and two in Kansas City (the A’s and the Royals). His best years were in Milwaukee with the Brewers. In 1971 he appeared in 83 games, compiled 31 saves and 1.92 ERA, and set an American League record by finishing 77 games. His 12 losses that season (against 7 wins) are the third-most relief losses in a season.
Sanders also led the league in relief losses in 1966 with the Red Sox when he was 6-10, and again in 1972 with Milwaukee, when he was 2-9. He had only one start in his 408 major league games.
