Mike Torrez Speaking FeeFormer MLB Pitcher Mike Torrez was recently the guest speaker for the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame induction that happened on July 13th. During his speech, Torrez discussed his 18-year career in professional baseball which has been the passion of his life time. In addition to that, he told stories from his youth such as how he first got involved in baseball at the age of nine by serving as the batboy for his State Street School team out of Topeka. Given that Torrez has just been inducted into the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame five years ago, it was fun for both he and the audience to see him return to his home stomping grounds.

The Topeka, Kansas native showed an interest in having a career in baseball at a very young age, which led him to sign as an amateur free agent with the St. Louis Cardinals at the age of 18 in 1964. He made his MLB debut on September 10, 1967 for the Cardinals with whom he played for during the first four years of his career. Before his last day on the MLB pitch, Torrez had played for a number of teams including the Montreal Expos, Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets. The highlight of his career was no doubt winning the 1977 World Series Championships while he was with the Yankees.

Torrez recently traveled back to his hometown of Topeka to speak at the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame that happened earlier this month on July 13. It was a special day for the newest members to the hall of fame, as well as for Torrez who hadn’t been back to his stomping grounds in five years.
