 Biographical Information
Pitcher Pat Ahearne played for teams in the US, Taiwan, the Czech Republic, Canada and Australia.
Although Ahearne's only major league season was 1995, as a member of the Detroit Tigers, his minor league and independent league career has continued. In 2006, he went 12-4. Another good year was 2000, when he went 13-8 in the Pacific Coast League. Over his first 15 seasons in the minors and independent ball, he pitched more than 2,000 innings and won 114 games.
Ahearne pitched for Tornado Balashikha in the 2008 European Cup, going 0-2 with a 2.40 ERA. He lost a 2-0 pitching duel to T & A San Marino's Horacio Estrada, taking a no-hitter into the 7th before Martin Vasquez tripled and Max De Biase singled. He then lost a 3-2 match to the Royal Greys and Daniel Howard in his second outing. He led a surprisingly strong staff composed otherwise of Russian natives (4.28 team ERA).
Ahearne was back in the European Cup in 2009, this time with Draci Brno of the Czech Extraliga. Ahearne blanked FC Barcelona for 6 innings but faded, allowing 4 runs in the final three to take the loss. He pitched and coached in the Extraliga from 2009-2012.
