Erik Schullstrom was born on Tuesday, March 25, 1969, in San Diego, California. Schullstrom was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on July 18, 1994, with the Minnesota Twins. 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 Erik Schullstrom baseball stats page.
"Erik Schullstrom admits he was a forgettable major league pitcher. He lasted barely more than a year in the bigs in the mid-1990s and endured more than his share of journeyman left turns. He played for nine minor league teams in four organizations over seven seasons. When the right-hander finally reached the majors with the Minnesota Twins in 1994, baseball went on strike three weeks after he arrived. In 1995, one of his most vivid memories is that he nearly hit Mark McGwire in the head with a pitch during a game at the Coliseum." - Sportswriter Carl Steward (The Mercury News, 01/27/2012, , Source )

Did you know that Erik Schullstrom is the only pitcher in Major League history with sixty-or-more career innings pitched, without recording a single decision (win or loss)?
No Decision Club
Erik Schullstrom, as illustrated above, would be alone in the "club" if we left the innings pitched total at sixty, so after reducing it to fifty-or-more career innings pitched, no wins, no losses, we can include: Don Rowe (54.2 IP), Tom Qualters (52.2 IP), Mike Kinnunen (51.2 IP), and Harry Shuman (50.2 IP).
When Erik Schullstrom stepped onto the mound on July 18, 1994 , he became the fifth Major League pitcher from Alameda High School (Alameda, CA) to make it to the show, joining Duffy Lewis (1910), Dutch Lieber (1935), Bill Macdonald (1950), and Bob Veselic (1980).
