Interestingly enough, if you checked out my post about Joe Borowski yesterday, you will notice some similiarities regarding their time with the O's. Both Mike & Joe began their career with the Orioles and appeared in only six games for the black & orange. Weird, right?
The reason that Mike's Orioles tenure was so short is that the Royals selected him with the 17th pick of the 1968 expansion draft. He went on to hit the first HR in Kansas City Royals history in the team's fifth game on April 13, 1969. That's a pretty cool thing to do to get yourself in the record books!
