Tom Candiotti Biography
Tom Candiotti was born August 31, 1957 in Walnut Creek, California and is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who was known for his knuckleball. He played for the Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers. Candiotti is currently a TV-Radio analyst for the Arizona Diamondbacks and is under contract through the 2011 season. Candiotti is a graduate of Queen of All Saints Catholic School in Concord, California and a proud alumnus of Saint Mary's College of California.
Candiotti, nicknamed The Candy Man or simply Candy,[ was originally drafted by Kansas City in 1980 but claimed in the Rule 5 Draft by Milwaukee that year. After two forgettable seasons with the Brewers, Candiotti signed with Cleveland in 1985, where he would enjoy his most successful seasons. With the woeful Indians of the 1980s, Candiotti would have a record of 72-65 with only one losing season. His best season was 1988 when he went 14-8 with a 3.28 ERA and 137 strikeouts.
In 1991, Cleveland shipped him to Toronto to help in their playoff run. He left the Blue Jays the following season to sign with Los Angeles where he would pitch well for 6 years, hampered by poor run support. He finished his career with the Indians before retiring in 1999.
Candiotti appeared briefly in Billy Crystal's 2001 movie 61* as the Hall of Fame relief ace, Hoyt Wilhelm, who was also well known for his knuckleball.
Candiotti was inducted into the International Bowling Museum's Hall of Fame on June 27, 2007. He is currently divorced from real estate mogul Donna Candiotti. They have 2 sons, Casey Koufax Candiotti and Clark Nicklaus Candiotti.
