Biographical Information[edit]

One can argue that Jack DiLauro outpitched Nolan Ryan on the New York Mets in 1969, and almost outpitched Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman. DiLauro's ERA of 2.40 was one of the lowest on the team, which went on to win the 1969 World Series although DiLauro did not appear in it.

DiLauro also has one of the lowest Mets ERA's of all time, for pitchers with at least 50 innings.

His 1970 ERA, after he had been traded to the Houston Astros, while not as impressive, was still close to the team ERA.

DiLauro was in the Detroit Tigers organization from 1963 to 1968, twice winning 14 games in the minors. He was mostly (but not always) a starter during his minor league career, which went through 1972.

He went 6-5 in 1967 for the Toledo Mud Hens, a team which won the Governors' Cup. He went 11-6 for the 1968 Toledo team, which won the pennant. He is in the team photos for both teams in the book Baseball in Toledo.
