Peter Thomas Harnisch (born September 23, 1966 in Commack, New York) is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played fourteen seasons for five teams from 1988 to 2001.

Harnisch was an All-Star in 1991 with the Houston Astros and also played for the Baltimore Orioles, the New York Mets, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Cincinnati Reds in his career.

On September 6, 1991, Harnisch struck out three batters on nine pitches in the ninth inning of a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Harnisch became the 17th National League pitcher and the 26th pitcher in Major League history to accomplish the nine-strike/three-strikeout half-inning.

Harnisch, a star pitcher at Fordham University, was the second pick on the second round of the Major League Baseball draft in 1987. He had a 21-3 career record for Fordham, a 2.29 earned run average and 213 strikeouts in 204 innings.

In 1997, Harnisch acknowledged he suffers from clinical depression[1], allegedly brought on due to his withdrawal from using chewing tobacco. [2]

He currently lives with his family in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
