Biographical Information[edit]

Wade Blasingame was signed by the Milwaukee Braves as an amateur free agent in 1961. He finished 9th in the National League in winning percentage in 1964, going 9-5. He won 16 games at age 21 in 1965, in the Braves' last year in Milwaukee, but he had a very poor strikeout-to-walk ratio - 117 Ks against 116 walks - and he never repeated that season, even though he pitched another seven years in the majors.
