"Herman (Starrette) was the great gentleman of baseball. He was well liked by everybody. He had a good word to say about all the people he worked with, but especially the pitchers he was working with at the time he was working with them. He was a very, very positive pitching coach and a real psychologist. He would give the pitchers a lot of confidence in themselves by focusing on the things they were doing well and improving on." - Baltimore Orioles General Manager Dan Duguette (Press Release Statement, Herm Starretta Dies , 06/04/2017)

Herman Paul Starrette was a Major League Baseball who pitched for the Baltimore Orioles from 1963 through 1965. Herm, his nickname, was the youngest of nine children and developed an interest in baseball because his older brothers pretended they were pitching in Yankee Stadium , while throwing rocks at trees!

Did you know that Herm Starrette was attending college at Lenoir-Rhyne College (1957-1958) when he told his professor, during an English exam, that he would do better at playing baseball than he would on the test, so he left class and started playing minor league baseball?

After Herm Starrette hung up his pitching cleats, he began coaching with the Rochester Red Wings (1967). That was the start of an amazing twenty-eight year career that included pitching coach, bullpen coach, minor league instructor, coordinator of instruction, and farm system director with the Braves, Orioles, San Francisco Giants, Philadelphia Phillies, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox!
