[edit] Biographical Information

Reggie Cleveland pitched 13 years in the major leagues, winning 105 games. When he first became a starting pitcher in 1971 with the St. Louis Cardinals, the starting rotation consisted of Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, Jerry Reuss, and Cleveland. Reggie was a valuable member of the Boston Red Sox rotation in 1975, serving as a swingman and posting a 13-9 record as the Bosox won the American League pennant. Cleveland finished his career with the Milwaukee Brewers in the strike-shortened 1981 season.

In 1990 Reggie pitched in the Senior Professional Baseball Association for the Florida Tropics; Reggie pitched in 6 games and was 2-3 when the league folded.

ESPN columnist Bill Simmons created a list of athletes whose names are incongruent with their race: that is, white players with black-sounding names and vice versa. He called players on his list Reggie Cleveland All-Stars[1], in honor of this white pitcher with a black-sounding name.
