Brian Holman

Brian Scott Holman (born on January 25, 1965, in Denver, Colorado) is a retired Major League Baseball pitcher.

Holman's brother Brad Holman and step-father Dick LeMay also were Major League pitchers.

Amateur career

As a senior at Wichita North High School‎, Holman made the all-state team. He was drafted out of high school by the Montreal Expos in the 1st round of the June amateur draft as the 16th pick.

Trades

Holman was sent along with Randy Johnson and Gene Harris from the Expos to the Mariners for Mark Langston and a player to be named later (Mike Campbell).

Career highlights

On April 20, 1990, against the Oakland Athletics, Holman retired the first 26 batters he faced before Ken Phelps hit a home run over the head of Jay Buhner in right field and turned his perfect game into the tenth one-hitter in Mariners history. At the time, no Mariner had pitched a no-hitter. Phelps had been traded by the Mariners to the Yankees in 1988 for Buhner. It was the last home run of Phelps' career.

Holman was inducted into the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007.

Retirement

He is now the head baseball coach at Andale High School in Andale, Kansas.
