Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Timlin pitched eighteen years and over 1,000 games in the majors. Of those games, he has only started four. The most wins he had in one season was as a rookie when he won 11. His top save total was in 1996 when he had 31 for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Mike never pitched in AAA as a Blue Jays prospect, instead making the professional roster in 1991 during Spring Training after having played for the AA Knoxville Blue Jays.

He pitched in four World Series - two with Toronto and two with the Boston Red Sox - and was on the winning side all four times.

In his first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame in 2014, he failed to receive a single vote and dropped off the ballot. On October 1, 2017, he was in the crowd at a Jason Aldean open-air concert in Las Vegas, NV when a shooter began firing at the crowd with semi-automatic weapons from a nearby hotel window, perpetrating the worst massacre in U.S. history. He managed to escape unhurt.
