Early and personal life

Mulholland is a 1981 graduate of Laurel Highlands (Pennsylvania) High School. He maintains a strong connection to his high school, where his baseball uniform number has been retired. He attended Marietta College in (Ohio) where he majored in sports medicine and played for legendary NCAA Division III coach Don Schaly.

He was a first team All-American his junior season when he was drafted in the first round by the San Francisco Giants. The school's baseball field sits on Mulholland Drive; it was renamed so in 1994 after Mulholland purchased a new lighting system for the field.

Terry is part owner of the Dirty Dogg Saloon, a bar in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has one child with his ex-wife, Julie. He remarried on February 14, 2009.

Career

Mulholland made his Major League debut on June 8, 1986, with the San Francisco Giants. After that, he played for eleven different Major League teams: the Giants, the Phillies, the Yankees, the Mariners, the Cubs, the Braves, the Dodgers, the Pirates, the Indians, the Twins, and the Diamondbacks.

He is well-known for having one of the nastiest pickoff moves in the game.[1]

During his career, Mulholland was one of the oldest active players. During the 2004 season, when he was paired with catcher Pat Borders, also a long-time veteran, they made up the oldest battery (pitcher/catcher duo) in Major League history.

San Francisco Giants

While pitching for the Giants, Mulholland made a play that is often shown on sports bloopers shows. After grabbing a hard-hit ground ball, the ball got stuck in the webbing of his glove. Mulholland then ran towards first base and tossed his glove at the first baseman, who recorded the out.

Philadelphia Phillies

He pitched a no-hitter for the Phillies against the Giants on August 15, 1990; it was the first no-hitter in Veterans Stadium history. He faced the minimum of 27 batters. The only batter that reached base, on an error by Charlie Hayes, was retired in a double play. The 27th out was made by Hayes with a lunging catch of Gary Carter's line drive down the 3rd base line. He defeated Don Robinson, who also served up the 500th career home run to Phillies legend, Mike Schmidt, just three years earlier. The only other no-hitter in Veterans Stadium was thrown by Kevin Millwood on April 27, 2003, also against the Giants.

Mulholland started Game 6 for the Phillies in the 1993 World Series versus the Toronto Blue Jays. This game will always be remembered for Mitch Williams giving up the series-ending home run to Joe Carter.

Mulholland was also the starting pitcher for the National League in the 1993 All-Star Game played at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.

Chicago Cubs

Terry was instrumental in the Cubs 1998 playoff run, pitching in relief and as a starter, often on consecutive days.

Atlanta Braves

At the 1999 trading deadline, the Braves acquired Mulholland along with infielder José Hernández from the Chicago Cubs for Micah Bowie, Rubén Quevedo and a player to be named later. He appeared in 16 games down the stretch with the Braves, going 4-2 with a ERA of 2.98. The next season, Mulholland was used as a spot starter for the Braves, and went 9-9 with a 5.11 ERA in 156.7 innings of work. He became a free agent after the season ended.

Arizona Diamondbacks

On June 21, 2006, the Diamondbacks waived Mulholland.
