 Biographical Information
Ken Hunt was a member of the starting rotation of the 1961 Cincinnati Reds in his only major league season. The Reds won the pennant with 93 victories that year.
The team's ERA that year was 3.78, third in the league, and Hunt's at 3.96 was close to the team average. Since Crosley Field was a hitter's park that year, the pitching was even stronger than it seemed.
Hunt is one of only major league 35 players (as of 2007) born in Utah, and became only the 15th player to die in Utah. A star baseball and basketball player in high school, he went to Brigham Young University on a baseball and basketball scholarship. After his baseball days he became a high school English teacher and baseball / basketball coach for 30 years.
