  • Pat McGlothin, former Dodgers pitcher, passes away

    McGlothin pitched for Brooklyn briefly in 1949 and 1950.

    McGLOTHIN, EZRA MALACHI (PAT) - age 93, of Knoxville, passed away Friday, October 24, 2014.

    Pat grew up in the John Sevier Community and later graduated from Central High School. He attended the University of Tennessee and played on the baseball team for two seasons, after which he enlisted in the Navy during World War II. Pat's signature baseball accomplishment was a game in 1944 with the Corpus Christi All-Stars.

    He pitched a 19 inning complete game, facing Ted Williams seven at bats with no hits surrendered and three strike outs. Pat went on to drive in the winning run. He rose through the minor leagues, culminating in two seasons as a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1949 and 1950. Pat was on the 1949 Dodger team that faced the New York Yankees in the World Series and was one of the last surviving players from that historic baseball era.
