Player Profile: Mike Barlow

I have three cards of Mike Barlow. This one is from 1981 Topps.

Playing career: Mike Barlow pitched for the Cardinals, Astros, Angels and Blue Jays from 1975 to 1981, going 10-6 with six saves and a 4.63 ERA in 133 games. A fuller account of his career can be found at the 1980Topps Blog.

Where he is now: Last year he retired as the Athletic Director at Bishop Grimes High School in Syracuse, NY.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Mike Barl, between Mike Bartlett, a playwright, and Mike Barletta, a Commander in the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. Another prominent Mike Barlow is a sculptor.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ricky Barlow.
