Biographical Information[edit]

Gregg Olson was 2-0 with 2 saves and a 3.53 ERA in 21 games for Team USA in 1987. He tied Cris Carpenter for the team lead with 69 strikeouts and his 51 IP were second to Carpenter. Carpenter's presence allowed Olson to join the rotation for the 1987 Pan American Games, when the US got a Silver. He was signed as a 1st round pick in the 1988 amateur draft by the Baltimore Orioles and scout Lamar North.

Olson had one career hit, a home run off Oscar Henriquez of the Florida Marlins on April 20, 1998 while playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

He is not to be confused with Greg Olson, a catcher who spelled his first name with only one "g". The two faced each other in the 1990 All-Star Game.

Olson was an announcer for the College World Series Greenville Super Regional in 2022.
