Biographical Information[edit]

In 1979, he established an MLB record when he surrendered 8 earned runs without a recording an out in his lone appearance of the season for the New York Yankees. The 8 runs are the most by a pitcher to post an ERA of infinity.

Kammeyer died of a pulmonary embolism in January 2003. He was 52.
