On Thursday, September 2nd (2010), our very own Salt Lake Bees representative Rick Dykhuizen caught up with the Angels assistant general manager and former major leaguer Ken Forsch while in Salt Lake.

Ken Forsch was selected by the Houston Astros in the 18th round (399th overall) of the 1968 MLB amateur draft. Forsch played for the Astros from 1970-80 and was then traded to the California Angels, where he played from 1981-84 and 1986. He was selected to the All-Star Game in 1976 and 1981.

Over his 16-season career, Forsch posted a 114-113 record with 1047 strikeouts and a 3.37 ERA in 2,127-1/3 innings pitched. Forsch pitched a no hitter on April 7th, 1979 and shut out the Atlanta Braves, 6–0. Ken's brother Bob who played for the St. Louis Cardinals also hurled a no-hitter (two actually), making the Forsch brothers the only set of siblings to pitch a no hitter in the big leagues.

Today, Ken is the assistant general manager to current Angels GM Tony Reagins. In this audio interview, Ken Forsch talks about his major league career, his job with the Angels and some of the current crop of top prospects.
