Mike Flanagan was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 7th round of the 1973 draft. He made his major league debut with the team on September 27, 1975. He was one the team's most dependable pitchers for the next nine years, going the the All-Star game in 1978 and winning the Cy Young Award in 1979. That season was his best in baseball: he had a record of 23-9 (leading the league in wins) and an ERA of 3.08. On August 31, 1987, Flanagan was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for Oswaldo Pereza and Jose Mesa. He had two solid seasons for the Blue Jays as a starting pitcher before being converted to a reliever in the 1990 season. He returned as a free agent to the Orioles for the 1991 season, and was very effective that season in a relief role. After a forgetable 1992 season, Flanagan retired from baseball.
