Biographical Information[edit]

Craig Glassco was a minor league pitcher from 1965 to 1974. He started his professional career in the Chicago Cubs organization in 1965 and spent three seasons there, having his best year in 1966, when he was 11-7, 4.57 between Quincy and Lodi. He was released after the 1967 season, was out of organized baseball in 1968, then was signed by the newly-minted Montreal Expos before the 1969 season. Shuffling between the bullpen and the starting rotation, he did not do much until he started 25 games for the AAA Peninsula Whips in 1973, pitched 159 innings and had a 8-13 record with a 3.91 ERA. It was enough to get him a non-roster invitation to the Expos' major league spring training the next year. He had developed a decent forkball that caught his bosses' attention, but it wasn't enough to make the jump to the majors. He struggled with the Memphis Blues in 1974, with a 6.09 ERA in 14 games, was released, caught on with the Sacramento Solons in the Milwaukee Brewers organization, and finished the season there, going 4-7, 7.62 in 12 games. That was the end of his professional career.
