Thomas Henry Burgmeier (b. August 2, 1943) is a former MLB relief pitcher who played for the California Angels, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox and Oakland A’s from 1968 to 1984. He has also served as the pitching coach of the Omaha Royals.
Burgmeier was selected to the American League All-Star team in 1980.
On August 3, 1980, while playing for the Boston Red Sox, Burgmeier moved from the pitcher’s mound to left field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Skip Lockwood replaced Burgmeier on the mound and retired the final batter to save a 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers. Manager Don Zimmer elected to keep Tom in the game in case the batter got on base—in that case Burgmeier would have returned to the mound to face Mickey Rivers.
Win-loss record – 79-55
ERA – 3.23
