Major League Baseball Player. For eight seasons (1962 to 1967 and 1969 to 1970), he was a pitcher with the Kansas City Athletics, Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros. He attended Barrington High School in Illinois, where he was a versatile athlete as he participated in football, basketball and baseball. Signed by the Indians as an amateur free agent in 1952, he marked his Major League debut ten years later with Kansas City on April 11th, 1962. He pitched in 37 games with the Athletics that year. In 1963 while with the Angels, he yielded a career-high 8 wins and during the course of his career, Osinski maintained a respectable ERA of below 4.00 in six out of his eight years. In 1965 while in a Braves' uniform, he appeared in 61 games which placed him in the top-10 in the National League in that statistic. Osinski experienced a pennant-winning season while with Boston during their "impossible dream" year of 1967. He saw action during the 1967 World Series, as he pitched in 2 games. In 324 regular season games, he compiled a 29 win 28 loss record with a 3.34 lifetime ERA in 589 innings pitched. After retiring from baseball, he operated a restaurant. (bio by: C.S.)
