San Francisco Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow has been selected for induction into the California Collegiate Athletic Association Hall of Fame.
Krukow starred for three seasons at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo -- which is now a part of the Big West Conference -- before being selected in the eighth round of the 1973 MLB Draft by the Chicago Cubs.
Though his college career was cut short by signing with the Cubs, Krukow still owns multiple records for the Mustangs baseball team. Krukow's 1.94 career ERA at Cal Poly is still the school record, and his five shutouts in one season have him tied for the single season record.
He was also inducted into the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Hall of Fame in 1987.
Krukow made his MLB debut in 1976 with the Cubs at 24 years old, but his best years came later in his career when he was traded to the Giants in the 1982 offseason. The Giants traded Al Holland and Joe Morgan to the Philadelphia Phillies for Krukow, Charles Penigar, and Mark Davis.
In 1986, Krukow celebrated a career-year with the Giants by going 20-9 with a 3.05 ERA and struck out 178 batters in 245 innings pitched. All were career bests for Krukow. For his efforts, Krukow finished third in the National League Cy Young voting, 15th in NL MVP voting, and made his first and only All-Star Game.
During his seven-year tenure as a pitcher for the Giants, Krukow compiled a 66-56 record with a 3.84 ERA and 802 strikeouts in 1,154 innings pitched.
His 14-year MLB career concluded with a 124-117 record, a 3.90 ERA and 1,478 strikeouts over 2,190.2 innings pitched for the Cubs, Phillies, and Giants.
Krukow is in his 23rd season as a television broadcaster and 19th on radio.
