Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Koch is a former Major League Baseball relief pitcher. He entered the majors with the Toronto Blue Jays and most recently pitched for the Florida Marlins in 2004. Koch played college baseball for Clemson University from 1994 to 1996. He was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1st round of the 1996 amateur draft and made his debut in 1999. Koch made an instant impression by regularly hitting 100 MPH on the radar gun. The pitch speed, posted on the SkyDome jumbotron after every pitch, consistently drew "ahs" from the crowd. Koch was groomed for the role of closer and had mixed success at the role over the next three seasons.

Nevertheless, he continued to post improving save numbers from 1999 to 2001show more
