Robert Joseph Galasso (born January 13, 1952 in Connellsville, Pennsylvania) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He pitched in three seasons in MLB between 1977 and 1981.
One highlight of Bob's brief MLB career was picking up a win in relief during a marathon 20 inning game vs the Red Sox on September 3, 1981. He pitched 3 scoreless innings (17th, 18th and 19th) to earn the victory for the Mariners. Over his career, he made 55 total appearances in the major leagues (8 starts).
Bob played in the Italian Baseball League, and led his team to the championship series, winning a dramatic game seven against another former MLB pitcher, Pete Falcone.
In his Letters from Home Plate response, Bob lists Stan Musial as his favorite player growing up, George Brett as the toughest hitter he ever faced, and Fenway Park as his favorite park to play in.
Bob's father, Bob Galasso, Sr., pitched in the Pittsburgh Pirates chain in 1949.
