Rick Luecken

Rick Luecken pitched out of the Royals bullpen during the 1989 season with a 3.42 ERA in 19 appearances. Following the season, Kansas City traded him to the Atlanta Braves with Charlie Leibrandt in exchange for Gerald Perry, and he would finish out the 1990 season with both the Braves and Blue Jays. A 6-6 righty, Luecken was originally drafted by the Mariners and acquired by KC from Seattle with Danny Tartabull (for Scott Bankhead, Mike Kingery and Steve Shields). The Texas A&M graduate recently joined Dave O to talk about Baseball City memories, his love for Rosenblatt Stadium, Bo Jackson stories, what it was like playing with the young Braves nucleus before they turned the corner and lots more!
