Kip Young

1980 Topps

Young pitched in 27 games for the Detroit Tigers in 1978 and 1979. In 149.1 innings of work he posted an 8-9 record with a 3.86 ERA. He pitched well for the Tigers as a rookie in 1978, winning six games to go along with a 2.81 ERA. Unfortunately, his earned run average jumped to 6.39 the following season and soon he was out of the game. Young pitched professionally from 1976-1982.

Young made his first start on July 24, 1978, in Detroit against the Oakland A’s. He pitched a complete game and gave up one run to lead the Tigers to victory. He went on to throw complete games in his next three starts, which were all wins as well.

We featured Dave Tobik in February.
