Biographical Information[edit]

"Maybe three dozen guys came in and out of Harlan during the ’63 season, and to show how very competitive the minor leagues are, only five of us ever made it to the majors: pitcher Mike Jurewicz (Yankees, 1965, for two games/2.1 innings) . . ." - from Fritz Peterson's blog [1], remembering Mike Jurewicz (and others not listed here) from the Harlan team in 1963

Mike Jurewicz pitched for the New York Yankees at age 19 in 1965. He had started in the minors at age 17, on the same team as Fritz Peterson, and after moving his way up the ladder, came to the majors on September 7th. His two appearances were against the Baltimore Orioles and the Cleveland Indians. He was back in the minors in 1966 and 1967.
