[edit] Biographical Information

Kirk McCaskill was an all-American hockey player at the University of Vermont. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 1981 NHL entry draft (64th overall) by the Winnipeg Jets, and played the 1983-84 season for the Sherbrooke Jets of the AHL. His father, Ted McCaskill, played with the Minnesota North Stars of the NHL and the Los Angels Sharks of the WHA in 1967-68, 1972-73, and 1973-74.

In baseball, McCaskill was signed as a 2nd round pick in the 1982 amateur draft by the California Angels and scout Joe Maddon.

He is the only pitcher ever to give up back-to-back home runs to a father and son; it happened on September 14, 1990 facing Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey, Jr. McCaskill's 106 wins were second by a Canadian major leaguer, following Ferguson Jenkins, until Ryan Dempster surpassed him in 2011.
