 Biographical Information
"The guy had electric stuff. He was a power guy who came right at people . . ." - Rick Honeycutt
Relief pitcher Steve Howe saved 17 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1980 and won the National League Rookie of the Year Award. He pitched 12 seasons in the big leagues. However, he is best known for being suspended from baseball seven times for various drug offenses.
Having six prior suspensions for drug abuse, Howe was permanently banned from organized baseball on July 24, 1992 after he pled guilty to trying to purchase cocaine sixteen days earlier. Arbitrator George Nicolau overturned Howe's banishment the following November.
Howe died in a one-vehicle accident when his pickup truck overturned while he was driving in Coachella, CA.
