Edward Miguel “Mike” Garcia (November 17, 1923 - January 13, 1986) was a member of the “Big Four” Cleveland Indians pitching staff in the 1950s that included Bob Feller, Early Wynn and Bob Lemon. Mike joined the Indians organization in 1949 as a regular, after three years in the service and another few in the minors. He went 14-5 with 94 strikeouts in his rookie year and from 1949 to 1954, Garcia had a 104-57 record with a 2.91 earned run average and 20 shutouts. Mike was named to three consecutive MLB All-Star Games (1952-1954). He twice led the American League in shutouts and ERA and once in games started. Mike posted a 19-8 record, a league-leading 2.64 ERA and a league-leading five shutouts as the Indians marched to the American League pennant in 1954, only to fall to the New York Giants in a four-game sweep. Mike pitched 14 seasons in the Majors with the Indians (1948-1959), the Chicago White Sox (1960) and the Washington Senators (1961). Mike Garcia’s career was cut short due to nagging back problems and finished his career with a 142-97 record with a 3.27 ERA, 1,117 strikeouts and 27 shutouts.
