Mike Armstrong

Mike Armstrong pitched for the Royals in 1982 and 1983, compiling a 15-12 record with a 3.51 ERA in 110 games. Armstrong is remembered both as a very dependable reliever and also, as the pitcher who notched the victory in the infamous “Pine Tar Game.” Overall, the 6-3 right hander spent parts of eight years at the major league level for the Padres, Royals, Yankees and Indians. Armstrong recently joined Dave O to talk about how dangerously close his career was to being over in the minor leagues, how much he LOVED pitching in Kansas City, Pine Tar game memories, his friendship with Dan Quisenberry, frustrations upon being traded to the Yankees and lots more!
