 Biographical Information
Lefthander Ray Sadecki pitched for 18 major league seasons, compiling a record of 135-131. He won 20 games for the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals but never again came close to that mark. He was the winning pitcher and had a run-scoring single in Game 1 of the 1964 World Series.
Ray was traded from the Cardinals to the San Francisco Giants for Orlando Cepeda on May 8, 1966. The trade occurred right after the two teams played each other in the final game at the original Busch Stadium.
Ray is the only pitcher off whom Bob Uecker hit two home runs, both of which came in 1966. His 206 strikeouts for the Giants in 1968 were the most by a lefthander in franchise history, until Madison Bumgarner had 219 in 2014.
