From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Michael Sisler (born October 16, 1931 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former pitcher who played in Major League Baseball from 1956 through 1962. Sisler batted and threw right-handed. He is the son of George Sisler and the brother of Dick Sisler.

Sisler attended Princeton University, pitching more games in the Majors than any other player out of the school.[1]

Listed at 6' 4", 200 lb., Sisler filled various pitching roles as a starter, or coming out from the bullpen as a closer or a middle reliever. He reached the Majors in 1956 with the Boston Red Sox, spending three-and-a-half seasons with them before moving to the Detroit Tigers (1959-1960), Washington Senators (1961) and Cincinnati Reds (1962). His most productive years came with Boston, when he won 24 games from 1956-58, averaging 138 innings each season. After that, he appeared strictly as a reliever and saved a career-high 11 games for the Senators.

In a seven-season career, Sisler posted a 38-44 record with a 4.33 ERA in 247 appearances, including 29 saves, 12 complete games, one shutout and 656⅓ innings.
