Year Inducted – 1982

Baseball Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel, would tell sportswriters that baseball was 90 percent pitching. Glinsky was the epitome of that bit of “Stengelese” during a long career in the AA League, as well as a brilliant four-year career at Akron U (1962-65). The powerful right-handed thrower had early success in the AA League while twirling for Tiny’s Orphans and Blatz Beer. In 1962 he established a UA record that has yet to be broken when he led the nation with a remarkable 0.37 earned run average. After a stint with the U.S. Army, Glinsky returned to perform first with the Airmatic Valves and then the Red Peppers, for which he helped capture the 1971 League title. All told, Glinsky, who was always among the leaders in strikeouts and ERA in AA League play, was named to its All-Star team 11 times during his outstanding career.
