Zahn, a lefty, was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1968 out of the University of Michigan. He made his Major League debut for the Dodgers in 1973 and spent 11 seasons in the big leagues with stints pitching for the Chicago Cubs, the Minnesota Twins and the California Angels. In eight seasons between 1977 and 1984, he notched double figures in victories seven times with his finest season in 1982 when he went 18-8 with a 3.73 earned run average for the Angels who came within a win of reaching the World Series. The team, which included Hall of Famers Rod Carew and Reggie Jackson along with Don Baylor and Fred Lynn, lost to the Milwaukee Brewers in the American League Championship Series.
Zahn has authored several articles for MLB.com and Collegiate Baseball. He's the founder of the Master Pitching Institute and GeoffZahn.com.
