Player Profile: Mike Bielecki

I have 38 cards of Mike Bielecki. This one is from 1987 Fleer.

Playing career: Mike Bielecki pitched 14 seasons in the major leagues, winning 70 games. His best season was 1989, when he went 18-7 with a 3.14 ERA for the Cubs.

Where he is now: A stay-at-home dad and youth baseball coach.

My memories: He shared his favorite card with this blog in 2012.

Interesting facts: He was invited to go on the ill-fated fishing trip that claimed the lives of Tim Crews and Steve Olin, but his wife refused because she did not feel comfortable on a previous trip. Smart move by Mrs. Bielecki.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Mike Bie, ahead of Mike Bierek, an artist. Another prominent Mike Bielecki is a Government Relations Principal at the law firm Lewis Roca in Phoenix.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Nick Bierbrodt.
