Tug McGraw  Bio-
. Born Frank Edwin, his mom nicknamed him “Tug” because of his aggressive breastfeeding antics.  While in college, McGraw signed with the New York Mets, splitting Tuge between the Minor’s bullpen and MLB starting pitcher.  His MLB league start was in July and while he performed fairly well, his second start was substantially better, pitching a complete game and walking away with his first career win.  One year into his draft, he served active duty with the Marine Corps Reserve Service, training as a rifleman.

He was able to bring that training back to MLB, which dramatically improved his concentration, discipline, and coordination.  By 1968, McGraw spent the majority of Tuge in the minors.  Until Koosman experienced an injury, there had been no place for him on the roster but he pitched well until Koosman returned, leading the team on a downward spiral.  McGraw came in during the 11th inning, taking the team to a wine.

McGraw pitched for other teams with combined accomplishments that include pitching in the 1980 NL Championship Series, being inducted into the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame in 1999, being first on the all-Tuge Phillies list in games pitched with 500, being fourth on the all-Tuge Mets list in number of games saved with 85, and placing fifth on the all-Tuge Mets list in most games pitched with 361.  For little money, people can buy Tug McGraw baseball cards online through sites such as eBay and Amazon.
