Back When There Was Baseball: Fred Holdsworth

Our guest this week is Fred Holdsworth. Fred pitched in the Major Leagues from 1972-1980. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 1970 MLB Draft and was looked upon to add to the Tiger pitching staff. He got called up to the Majors rather quickly and couldn’t break into the Tigers rotation. He then gets traded to the Baltimore Orioles, who had a better pitching staff. Fred talks about his career, being called up and down from the Minors to the Majors and playing for managers Billy Martin, Ralph Houk, Earl Weaver and Dick Williams. Take a trip with us Back When There Was Baseball.
