Peter James Mikkelsen
Birth: Oct. 25, 1939
Death: Nov. 29, 2006

Professional Baseball Player. Born in Staten Island, New York, Pete Mikkelsen later went to school in Los Angeles, becoming highly sought after for his baseball skills. A right handed pitcher, he was signed by the Yankees as an amateur free agent in 1958. After after making several minor league stops and serving two years in the Marine Corps, he made his Major League debut against Baltimore on April 17, 1964. He was used entirely in relief that season as he pitched to a 7-4 record with 12 saves in 50 games. He appeared in the 1964 World Series against the Cardinals, giving up 4 hits and 3 earned runs over 4.7 innings of work as the Yanks lost Game 5, 5-2. The three runs that he gave up were all in the 10th inning and he was saddled with the loss. Traded to the Pirates after the 1965 season, he later pitched for the Cubs, Cardinals and Dodgers, finishing up his pro career in 1973. He later became a farmer in Prosser, Washington. Over the course of his 9 year career Mikkelsen went 45-40 with a 3.45 ERA in 364 games. (bio by: Frank Russo)
