Biographical Information[edit]

Cal Schiraldi pitched 8 years in the major leagues with a record of 32-39. He was also a tremendous college star, considered better by many people than his teammate Roger Clemens.

Drafted in the first round in 1983, he was already pitching in the majors by September 1984. By 1986, he had found a role with the division-winning Boston Red Sox, as he posted a 1.41 ERA with 9 saves in 25 appearances.

However, mostly, his ERA was a bit too high, and he moved around to 5 teams in his 8 year major league career. He was good with the strikeouts, though, ringing up 471 strikeouts in his major league career in 553 1/3 innings.

In the minors with Jackson in 1984 he went 14-3, and also went 3-1 with Tidewater that same season.

He is currently (2016) the baseball coach at St. Michael's Catholic Academy.

He attended the University of Texas, which won the 1983 College World Series; he was given the award as the Most Outstanding Player. Teammates at Texas included Roger Clemens and Spike Owen, who were also his teammates on the 1986 Red Sox.
