Baseball players are often remembered for the skill they displayed on the field, and in some instances for their amazing plays. The ability to create such memories is the backbone of the game’s rich tradition and why legions of fans lovingly curate the stories throughout the years. There are also players like pitcher Dave Rozema, who while having a solid 10-year career, may be best known for his exploits without a ball, glove or bat in his hands.
The right-handed Rozema was a fourth-round draft choice of the Detroit Tigers in 1975 out of Grand Rapids Community College. “Rosey” went a combined 26–9 with a 1.86 ERA in two minor league seasons after his selection, earning him a promotion to Detroit in 1977. He won 15 games as a rookie, including 16 complete games, and went on to have a successful decade in the big leagues (1977–1986), spending the final two years with the Texas Rangers.
