[edit] Biographical Information

Galen Cisco was a captain on the 1957 Ohio State football team which won the national championship. He played fullback for the Buckeyes and was elected to the Ohio State Athletic Hall of Fame as a football and baseball player in 1995.

Cisco pitched in the majors for parts of seven seasons, most notably with the New York Mets for several years. He lost 19 games for the 1964 Mets despite posting a respectable 3.62 ERA.

After his playing days, Cisco was a big league coach for nearly 30 years. He was a member of the Kansas City Royals staff from 1971 to 1979 and then was a Montreal Expos coach from 1980 to 1984. He then spent the next three seasons (1985 to 1987) with the San Diego Padres before spending 1988 with the Toronto Blue Jays. He returned to the Jays as pitching coach from 1990 to 1995 and ended his career as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies staff from 1997 to 2000. With both Montreal and San Diego, the manager was Dick Williams.

Cisco currently resides in Celina, Ohio. His grandson, Mike Cisco, was drafted in the 2008 amateur draft. His sons, Jeff Cisco and Galen Cisco, Jr. also played in the minors.
