An all-star in 1986, Schrom pitched for seven seasons in the big leagues, compiling a 51-51 record and a 4.81 ERA in 176 games. Schrom came up with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1980 but pitched sparingly for the club over the next three years. He was released by Toronto at the end of the 1982 season and caught on with the Minnesota Twins. Schrom turned in what would be the best year of his career for Minnesota in 1983. He won 15 games and had a career-low 3.71 ERA. He made his way to the Cleveland Indians in 1986 and won 14 games, earning a trip to the All-Star Game in the process. Arm injuries hampered Schrom’s progress over the next two seasons and he was out of the big leagues for good in 1987.
While Schrom was a member of the 1986 American League All-Stars, he did not play in the game.
