Mike Bacsik - Profile

Title: Pitching Coach
Mike Bacsik is the team’s pitching coach.  Bacsik was signed as a free agent by the Texas Rangers in 1973.  He spent three seasons, from 1975-1977, with Texas, then finished his career with two seasons with the Minnesota Twins.  Bacsik was one of 30 pitchers who pitched to Hank Aaron while Aaron was on 755 home runs, in 1976. Coincidentally, his son, Mike Bacsik, pitched to Barry Bonds when Bonds was on 755 home runs. Aaron went 1 for 2 against the elder Bacsik with a single; Bonds went 3 for 3 against the younger Bacsik with a double, a single and the record-breaking home run. Both Bacsiks pitched for the Texas Rangers in their careers, making them the first father-son combination to play for the team.   Bacsik graduated from Trinity University, where he is a member of their baseball Hall of Fame.
