Marty Kutyna

1960 Topps

Kutyna pitched in 159 big-league games between 1959-1962 for the Kansas City A’s and the Washington Senators. He went 14-16 with eight saves and a 3.88 ERA. He won six games while pitching 143 innings for the Senators in 1961 in what was arguably his best season. Kutyna’s professional career stretched from 1953-1963.

While he did not answer our five questions, Kutyna sent enough information to answer those questions and a lot more.


He had President John F. Kennedy sign the ball he recovered.


A few more items from Kutyna, including his reminiscence on his career.


As well as his thoughts about facing Ted Williams.



And an article on his bullpen heroics for the Senators.
