Mike Young Obituary, Death Cause – Mike Young, a former outfielder for clubs in the Major League Baseball who passed away on May 29 at the age of 63, was a former player. He played in the Major League Baseball for all or part of eight seasons between the years 1982 and 1989, mostly taking on the roles of an outfielder and a designated hitter. His career spanned the years 1982–1989. He played the most of his career in the major leagues with the Baltimore Orioles, but he also had stints with the Philadelphia Phillies, the Milwaukee Brewers, and the Cleveland Indians.
He spent the majority of his time in the major leagues with the Orioles. He participated in competitions in Japan as a member of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp squad in the year 1990. Young had his best season with the Orioles in 1985. He had a batting average of.273, hit 28 home runs, and drove in 81 runs during that year. Young hit two home runs in a game that went into extra innings for the first time on May 28, 1987, making him only the sixth player in the history of the major leagues to accomplish this feat. At Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, he led the Baltimore Orioles to a victory over the California Angels by hitting a home run in the 10th inning and then a walk-off home run in the 12th inning to end the game.
The final score was 8–7 in favor of the Baltimore Orioles. Young, who was attending Chabot College at the time, was taken by the Baltimore Orioles in the 11th slot of the first round in the 1980 Major League Baseball January Draft-Secondary Phase. In addition to his amazing home run total, he concluded his career with 454 hits, 235 runs batted in, and 72 home runs. His total number of home runs was 72. My heartfelt sympathies go out to his family and friends, and may he rest in peace now that he has finally left this world.
