Biographical Information[edit]

Trevor Sansom pitched as high as AA and was on Team USA.

He was 9-1 with a 3.55 ERA his last year in college, winning West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year. [1] The St. Louis Cardinals picked him in the 32nd round of the 1999 amateur draft, one round before Bo Hart.

Sansom made his pro debut with the New Jersey Cardinals that summer but struggled (1-3, 7.71 ERA, 2.14 WHIP in 20 G). He got another chance with the 2000 Peoria Chiefs and had a 2-8 record with 3 saves but a respectable 2.89 ERA. He spent most of 2001 with the Potomac Cannons (6-4, 2.71 in 50 G) and allowed one run in two innings for the New Haven Ravens. He tied Carmen Cali, Doug Kohl and Jason Marr for 8th in the Cards system in games pitched and was third in the Carolina League.

With the '02 Ravens, he went 4-4 with a 4.07 ERA in 47 games and was 1-for-2 in his only career at-bats. He tied Jeremy Cook for 9th in the St. Louis system in pitching appearances and tied Matt Duff for 8th in the Eastern League. Let go by the Cards, he had a 8-1, 2.09 record with six saves and a 1.04 WHIP for the independent Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in 2003. Team USA for the 2003 Baseball World Cup was made of indy league players; he did well for them with three shutout innings, fanning five and allowing two hits. Only Tim Christman pitched better for the US. [2]

Signed by the Oakland A's, he closed out his career with the 2004 Midland RockHounds (0-2, 2.70 in 16 G) and Modesto A's (2-1, 3 Sv, 1.80 in 7 G). He had gone 23-23 with 12 saves and a 3.26 ERA in 223 games as a pro.
