Steve Bartolin

  • Baseball (1969-72)
  • Inducted 1987

A native of nearby Hubbard, Ohio, Steve has been singled out by former head baseball coach Dom Rosselli as one of the four best pitchers to ever have pitched for the Penguins. Toiling for the Penguins from 1969 to 1972, he is still listed in the top-10 in 12 pitching categories. During his four seasons under Rosselli, he helped lead the Penguins to a combined 89-48 overall mark. In his first season (1969), the Penguins’ 21-10 overall ledger was the first of nine straight 20-victory seasons and 11 overall for head coach Dom Rosselli. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers, moving up to their AA affiliate before calling it a career in the mid-70’s.
