Who is Dave Skaugstad?
Skaugstad was signed as a free agent by the Cincinnati Redlegs on September 7, 1957, at the age of 17. His first major league appearance was just 18 days later, on September 25, at Crosley Field in Cincinnati. He entered the game in the top of the sixth inning with the Reds trailing the Chicago Cubs 7-2. He pitched four innings, giving up three hits and three walks while striking out four batters.
Four days later, he made his last appearance in the majors, facing the Milwaukee Braves at County Stadium. He entered the game in the bottom of the sixth inning in a scoreless game. He pitched a flawless sixth inning, but ran into troube in the next frame, giving up one hit, three bases on balls, and one run. In the 5⅔ innings that he pitched in the major leagues, Skaugstad faced four future Hall of Famers: Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, Red Schoendienst and Hank Aaron.
