Bob Buhl

Biography:Bob Buhl (August 12, 1928 - February 16, 2001) was an American right-handed starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played with the Milwaukee Braves (1953-62), Chicago Cubs (1962-66) and Philadelphia Phillies (1966-67).

A native of Saginaw, Michigan, in a 15-year career Buhl posted a 166-132 record with 1288 strikeouts and a 3.55 ERA in 2587 innings. He pitched 111 complete games and compiled 20 shutouts.

Buhl was a member of Braves teams to win the National League pennant in 1957 and 1958. A solid third starter behind dynamic duo of Warren Spahn and Lew Burdette, he put together back-to-back 18 win-season in 1956 and 1957. In 1959, Buhl won 15 games and led the National League with four shutouts. His most productive season came in 1960, when he finished with a 16-9 record, a 3.09 ERA and an All-Star berth.

In 1962, Buhl was traded to the Cubs after pitching just one game for the Braves. He landed in Philadelphia in 1966, in the same deal that brought Ferguson Jenkins to Chicago.

Buhl failed to record a single hit in 70 at-bats in 1962, the worst single-season batting performance in major league history.

Bob Buhl died in Titusville, Florida, just two days after his Braves roommate Eddie Mathews. He was 72.
