Sandalio Consuegra - 1951 Bowman

Sandy Consuegra (1920-2005) born Sandalio Simeon (Castellon) Consuegra holds the unenviable record of the highest earned run average in an All-Star Game at 135.00, setting said record in the 1954 Mid-Summer Classic when he allowed five runs on five hits, facing only 6 batters in 0.1 innings pitched. Consuegra had a decent record pitching in his native Cuba before signing with the Washington Senators and pitching for the Sens affiliate, the Havana Cubans of the Florida International League. Making his Major League debut at 29, Sandy went 7-8 in each of his first two seasons before putting up a 6-0 record in 1952. However, battles with management and tomfoolery in the dugout led the Senators (1950-1953) to release the right-hander and the Chicago White Sox purchased him in 1953. He pitched 3-1/2 years for the Southsiders (1953-1956) and had his best year in 1954 when he went 16-3 to lead the American League in winning percentage (.842) and earn his one and only MLB All-Star selection. The Baltimore Orioles, formerly the St. Louis Browns who relocated in 1953, purchased Sandy in 1956. Unfortunately, following the move to Baltimore, Consuegra would appear in only four contests in 1956 and five more in 1957, posting a record of 1-1, before the New York Giants nabbed him off the waver wire. But, by the time he reached the Polo Grounds, his career was coming to a close and in four games with the Giants posted a 0-0 record in 3.2 innings pitched. Sandy Consuegra enjoyed an eight-year career as a "swingman" pitcher, both starting and relieving, and posted a 51-32 record with 193 strikeouts, 24 complete games, five shutouts, 28 saves and a 3.37 ERA in 248 game appearances.
