Description:
Martin William "Marty" Pattin (born April 6, 1943) is an American former Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher. He pitched for the California Angels (1968), Seattle Pilots (1969), Milwaukee Brewers (1970–1971), Boston Red Sox (1972–1973), and the Kansas City Royals (1974–1980). During a 13-year baseball career, Pattin compiled 114 wins, 1,179 strikeouts, and a 3.62 earned run average. He had a pitching motion that resembled Denny McLain with a high leg kick.

Pattin was born in Charleston, Illinois and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Eastern Illinois University. A member of the EIU Panthers baseball team, he struck out 22 batters in a game. He joined the California Angels in 1968 and then was part of the Seattle Pilots in 1969, which later became the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970.

In Milwaukee, Pattin finished with a 14-12 record and a 3.39 ERA in 1970, and was named an All-Star in 1971, when he finished with a 14-14 record and a 3.12 ERA. At the end of the season, he was sent to the Boston Red Sox in a 10-player mega-trade that included Ken Brett, Billy Conigliaro, Tommy Harper, Jim Lonborg and George Scott. He won 32 games in two seasons with the Red Sox, including a no-hit bid foiled in 1972, when A's Reggie Jackson hit a single off him with one out in the ninth inning.

According to fellow pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee, Pattin had a habit of throwing up after the first inning of nearly every game he pitched with the Red Sox.
