Mike Kekich – 1973 Topps #371

Posted on


Michael Dennis Kekich (born April 2, 1945 in San Diego, California) was a Major League Baseball player between 1965 and 1977. In 1974, he played in Japan for the Nippon Ham Fighters. Kekich was a left-handed pitcher who began his career as a starter and moved to the bullpen as a reliever. He had a modestly successful career in the Major Leagues, but he is best remembered for trading families with fellow Yankees pitcher Fritz Peterson before the 1973 season. After his major league career ended, Kekich attempted a comeback in the Mexican League, but this proved unsuccessful. He is remarried and currently resides near Albuquerque, New Mexico.
