Father of Tom Tresh, Mike Tresh played twelve years in the American League, almost all with the Chicago White Sox. Mike had only two major league homers in over 1,000 games, unlike his son Tom who was a pretty good home run hitter.
Mike was a good enough catcher that he never played any other position in the majors.
After his playing days he scouted for the New York Yankees and worked for Ford Motor Company.
He died on October 4, 1966, two days after the end of the 1966 regular season in which his son Tom had achieved his career-best home run total of 27. His grandson, Mickey Tresh, played in the minor leagues from 1987 to 1990. He is also related to Luca Tresh.
