Douglas Keith Brocail (born May 16, 1967 in Clearfield, Pennsylvania) is an American Major League Baseball pitcher who is currently a free agent.


High school years

Brocail attended Lamar High School in Lamar, Colorado and was a good student and won All-State honors in football, basketball, and baseball.

Major league career

Doug was the first round draft pick of the San Diego Padres in 1986, but didn't make his major league debut until 1992 because of injuries sustained in the minors. Initially a starter, Brocail went 4-13 in his first full season (1993) before being converted to relief. More arm problems kept Brocail out of the big leagues for nearly four years (2000-04).


Doug and his wife, Lisa Brocail, have five daughters, Taylor, McKinzie, Madisyne, Camdyn, and Parker Elizabeth.[1] The names Camdyn and Parker are homages to Oriole Park at Camden Yards.


On September 13, 2004, Brocail was involved in an ugly incident at the McAfee Coliseum, when his Texas Rangers were playing the Oakland Athletics. His rookie teammate Frank Francisco, angry at fan Craig Bueno for heckling Brocail about his stillborn child, hoisted a folded chair into the stands, striking Bueno's wife and breaking her nose. [2] Brocail would later pitch 1/3 of an inning.

Brocail underwent angioplasty on March 11, 2006. He had complained of chest tightness that radiated into both arms. He already was being treated for an abscessed tooth and asthma. He only returned to the active roster on July 14.
