Biographical Information[edit]

In 1989, Steve McCatty played for the Fort Myers Sun Sox of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He went 5-6 for the club. In 1990, McCatty was 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA for the Sun Sox when the league folded.

McCatty and Sammy Stewart were the two pitchers involved in the famous "rounded-off ERA" controversy at the end of the 1981 season. Major League Baseball at the end of each season used to round off innings pitched to the nearest inning, until that turned out to alter the outcome of the 1981 championship for the lowest ERA.

In June 2009, McCatty replaced Randy St. Claire as pitching coach of the Washington Nationals. He was replaced by Spin Williams as pitching coach of Syracuse. He stayed with the Nationals until the end of the 2015 season, when he was dismissed along with manager Matt Williams' entire coaching staff.
