 Biographical Information
Tommie Sisk played nine years in the major leagues, primarily with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was 20 when he broke in.
On July 19, 1962, he made his major league debut, but did not fare too well. Although he started the game, he did not last more than two innings. After 1 1/3 innings pitched, three walks, two hits and three runs surrendered, he was out of the game, which was against the hapless New York Mets.
On March 28, 1969, Sisk was traded with Chris Cannizzaro to the San Diego Padres for Ron Davis and Bobby Klaus. With the expansion Padres, he posted a 2-13 record in 53 games, 13 of which he started. His ERA was 4.78. The Padres as a whole struggled that year - they finished the season with a 52-110 record. Fellow reliever Gary Ross went 3-12, while starters Clay Kirby and Joe Niekro went 7-20 and 8-17, respectively.
