Steve Stone

(1947 - )

Steven Michael Stone is a former Major League Baseball player and current sportscaster. He was one of the best Jewish pitchers in major league history, 3rd career-wise in wins (107) and strikeouts (1,065), behind Ken Holtzman and Sandy Koufax, and 9th in games (320). He started his career with the San Francisco Giants, and played for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs before his final two seasons with the Baltimore orioles. He was a successful right-handed pitcher. He once said “I'm the best right-handed Jewish pitcher to come into the majors in the past twenty years--mainly because I don't know of any others.” He currently works for both Chicago radio stations and ESPN.
