Biographical Information[edit]

Brian Holman was signed as a 1st round pick in the 1983 amateur draft by the Montreal Expos and scout Dick LeMay, who happened to also be his step-father. He is the brother of Brad Holman.

Holman was part of the Mark Langston trade that brought Randy Johnson from the Montreal Expos to the Seattle Mariners. In fact, he was considered the key player in the deal, as a top draft pick that everyone expected to be a successful starting pitcher in the majors. He is most famous for pitching a one-hitter against the Oakland A's on April 20, 1990 that was an out away from perfection. It was broken up by a home run off the bat of Ken Phelps, which turned out to be Phelps' final major league home run.

Holman spent two and a half years with the Mariners before arm trouble ended his career, and was a very solid pitcher during that span. He retired in 1994 after not pitching since 1991 and (as of last notice) is a financial adviser in Wichita, Kansas, and also coaches baseball at Andale High School.
