Biographical Information[edit]

Randy Sealy pitched seven years in the minor leagues, with a composite record of 35-39. He had one great year in A ball.

Sealy was picked by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the fourth round of the 1973 amateur draft. He debuted that year with the GCL Pirates, going 1-6 with a 7.57 ERA. He struck out 46 in 44 IP but walked 47. Randy had his best year in 1974, making the Western Carolinas League All-Star team. The right-hander for the Charleston Pirates led the WCL with a 1.97 ERA and went 12-5 with one save. He whiffed 132 in 155 1/3 IP while allowing only 99 hits and 45 walks.

In 1975, Sealy was promoted to the Shreveport Captains and was 10-5 with a 4.34 ERA. He split 1976 between the Charleston Charlies (1-2, 5.40) and the Captains (5-5, 3.49). Pittsburgh then traded him away to the California Angels in exchange for Mike Easler.

Randy split 1977 between the El Paso Diablos (2-2, 7.68) and the Daytona Beach Islanders (2-2, 3.82, 25 BB to 15 K in 33 IP). Returning to the Pittsburgh organization and Shreveport, his struggles continued, as he went 0-6 with one save and a 4.39 ERA in 10 games in 1978. He did not pitch in Organized Baseball in 1979.

In 1980, Sealy pitched for the West Haven Whitecaps, going 2-6 with 4 saves and a 5.46 ERA, allowing 120 hits in 94 IP as a reliever and spot starter.

Sealy went 2-0 with a 4.30 ERA in the 1989-1990 Senior Professional Baseball Association, though one source lists him with the Bradenton Explorers and one with the Gold Coast Suns.
