Pete Richert, A Fine Relief Pitcher

September 11, 2019

Pete Richert, a fine left handed relief pitcher played on 3 straight pennant winning teams with the Baltimore Orioles from (1969-1971).

He also was on L.A. Dodgers’ teams that first lost an unscheduled playoff for the N.L. crown in 1962 and then a World Series winner the next season.

In his first game, Richert set a record striking out the first six batters he faced over three different innings. One of the hitters in that ’62 Dodgers vs Reds game was future teammate on the ’70 World Series winning Baltimore Orioles, the great Frank Robinson.
