Pete Richert Stats

Pete Richert was born on Sunday, October 29, 1939, in Floral Park, New York. Richert was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 12, 1962, with the Los Angeles Dodgers. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Pete Richert baseball stats page.

"No one in the history of major-league baseball had a first appearance like that of hard-throwing left-handed pitcher Pete Richert. In his debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 12, 1962 , against the Cincinnati Reds at Dodger Stadium, Richert set a record by striking out the first six batters he faced. With the Dodgers trailing 4-0, he entered the game with two outs in the top of the second inning and struck out Vada Pinson for the final out. Richert then recorded a four-strikeout third inning in which his victims were Frank Robinson (his future Baltimore Orioles teammate), Gordy Coleman (who reached first base on a passed ball by catcher Johnny Roseboro ), Wally Post , and Johnny Edwards ; his record-breaking sixth strikeout was of Tommy Harper leading off the fourth." - Baseball Historian Adam Ulrey (SABR Baseball Biography Project, 'Pete Richert', Source )

On December 4, 1964, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded Pete Richert to the Washington Senators along with Frank Howard , Ken McMullen , Phil Ortega , and a player to be named later ( Dick Nen ) for Claude Osteen , John Kennedy and $100,000. Richert went from an All-Star rotation that featured Sandy Koufax , Don Drysdale , Johnny Podres , and Stan Williams , to one that included Phil Ortega , Buster Narum , Mike McCormick and Bennie Daniels - and it worked for Pete, who responded with 15 wins, 12 losses, a 2.60 ERA and an appearance in the 1965 All-Star Game (where he struck out Willie Mays in the 4th inning and Willie Stargell in the 5th inning).
