Mike Anderson (pitcher)

Michael James Anderson (born July 30, 1966) is a former Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Cincinnati Reds in 1993. He made his major league debut on September 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals. He pitched 123 of an inning, allowed 6 hits, 7 earned runs, and gave up 2 of 4 home runs in a single game hit by Mark Whiten. He only appeared in two more games after that. On December 10, 1993 he was traded with Darron Cox and Larry Luebbers to the Chicago Cubs for Chuck McElroy but he never made it to the majors with the Cubs. He continued to pitch in the minors until 1997, when he headed to Korea. In 1998, Anderson recorded a save in Game 3 of the 1998 Korean Series for the LG Twins, becoming the first American-born hurler to accomplish this feat.[1]
