Mike Kekich

Occasionally brilliant but more often erratic, Kekich was a hard-throwing lefthander who is best remembered for swapping families with Yankees teammate Fritz Peterson. He came up with the Dodgers but couldn’t crack their tough staff, and he spent his most active years with the Yankees. He was 10-9, 4.08 for New York in 1971 and 10-13, 3.70 in 1972. His American career was ended by a shoulder injury in 1977, though he later pitched in Mexico and Japan.
