Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Patrick Corkins (born May 25, 1946, in Riverside, California) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. The right-hander was signed by the San Francisco Giants as an amateur free agent before the 1965 season, and later drafted by the San Diego Padres from the Giants as the 31st pick in the 1968 MLB expansion draft. He played for the Padres from 1969 to 1974. Corkins is perhaps best-known for giving up Willie Mays's 600th home run. (September 22, 1969). The majority of his 157 appearances was as a relief pitcher, but he did start 44 games. During his career, Corkins gave up 248 walks in just 459.1 innings pitched, for a BB/9IP of 4.86, much higher than the National League average at that time.show more
