Jerry Lyscio

Jerry Lyscio was the first ever player to sign a contract with the Kansas City Royals on April 25th, 1968. The Brainerd, Minnesota native wasted no time in showing why, either, as he won his first three starts at Dubuque (A) and was named Midwest Player of the Month in May of 1968. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury would eventually cut Lyscio’s career short while at Elmira (AA) but the 6-1, 190 pound righty recently sat down with Dave O, in person, to tell completely amazing baseball stories, including how he was able to complete 57% of the professional games he started (66 of 115) and how he was ALSO the first Houston Astro. The first ever Astro AND Royal – how cool is that?!? (Photo Courtesy Jerry Lyscio)
