Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Myers was one of the few left-handed submarine pitchers in the major leagues. That made him extremely tough on left-handed batters, although he was vulnerable against righties. He played for nine clubs over thirteen seasons and was used almost exclusively as a LOOGY throughout his major league career. As a result, when he retired, among all pitchers who had pitched in 600 or more games, Myers had the fewest career innings pitched (541 2/3), despite the fact that he pitched in 883 games. Randy Choate has since "improved" on that mark, with 408 career innings over 672 appearances.

Myers is the all-time leader for appearances in which he faced only one batter and recorded one out, with 206 - 8 more than Javier Lopez.

Notable Achievements[edit]
