"As time passes, my story fades away."

Dave Dravecky

Dave Dravecky made his major-league debut with the San Diego Padres on June 15, 1982.

The left-handed Dravecky pitched 105 innings his rookie year, posting an ERA of 2.57.

In Dravecky’s sophomore year, he was named to Major League Baseball’s All-Star game and pitched two scoreless innings while striking out George Brett and Fred Lynn.

In over 25 innings of post season play, Dravecky was used both as a relief pitcher and as a starter. As a relief pitcher in the 1984 World Series for the Padres, Dravecky was flawless, allowing no earned runs in either the NLCS or the World Series, which the Padres eventually lost in five games to the Detroit Tigers.  

Dravecky started two games in the 1987 National League Championship Series for the San Francisco Giants. Throwing a complete game, he beat John Tudor of the St. Louis Cardinals in a 5-0 victory in Game Two. Tudor, however, took the rematch in Game Six in a 1-0 heart breaker. St. Louis would defeat the Giants in Game Seven and advance to the World Series.
