1993 Studio Pat Kelly

Hobbies are tennis, golf, traveling and music: A cool story re Kelly and traveling – on a 2013 drive with his family from Los Angeles to San Francisco, they stopped at a remote rest stop where they were the only ones there. Shortly after, another couple came to the remote rest stop – quite to their surprise, it was Yankees legend Don Larsen and his wife Corrine.

Favorite sports announcer is Howard Cosell: Cosell was famous for people loving to hate him but a lot of people must have liked him, as he wouldn’t have stuck around so long otherwise.

Favorite player as a kid was Larry Bowa: Kelly grew up in the Philadelphia area where he would have watched Bowa play.

Most prized possession is his beach home: Kelly moved from Pennsylvania to Tampa, FL after his rookie season.

Might have been a teacher if he hadn’t been an athlete: Kelly did not go into teaching after his baseball career.

Pet peeve is early phone calls: Baseball, and I guess sports in general, do favor night people over morning people.

Where he is now: After his career he has gone into scouting, focusing on Australian baseball. In late 2017 the 50-year-old Kelly and his 34-year-old girlfriend were arrested on domestic charges after a fight in Manhattan; charges were later dropped when both refused to cooperate with police.
