Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Milt May was the son of third baseman and minor league manager Pinky May and brother-in-law of Pat Osburn. His son Scott May also played minor league ball in 1996-1997.

May was slated to replace the legendary Roberto Clemente in the Pittsburgh Pirates lineup in 1973, with catcher Manny Sanguillen moving to right field. The experiment ended by July as Sanguillen could not adjust to playing in the outfield and May was back on the Pirates' bench. May was the regular catcher for the Houston Astros, Detroit Tigers, and San Francisco Giants at various points of his career. He was charged with 18 passed balls in 1975 for the Houston Astros who had knuckleballer Joe Niekro on their staff.

In 1999 May served as Pitching Coach for the Colorado Rockies. He was a coach for the GCL Orioles in 2010-2017.
