Michael Everett Arch Parrott (born December 6, 1954 in Oxnard, California), nicknamed "Bird", is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. Parrott graduated from Adolfo Camarillo High School in Camarillo, California in 1973. He was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the first round, 15th pick, of the 1973 Major League Baseball Draft. During a five-year baseball career, he pitched for the Orioles (1977) and the Seattle Mariners (1977–81).

Professional career[edit]

Baltimore Orioles[edit]

Parrott played for the Rochester Red Wings and was the International League's Most Valuable Pitcher in 1977. He was called up later that year by the Orioles and in three games, two starts, he gave up just one earned run.

Seattle Mariners[edit]

On December 7, 1977 he was traded by Baltimore to the Seattle Mariners for Carlos Lopez and Tommy Moore.

In 1979, Parrott won a career high 14 games for the Mariners. He also led all Seattle pitchers in wins that year.

After winning Seattle's opener in 1980, Parrott lost 16 straight to finish the season at 1-16, the longest such streak of the 1980s.

On March 5, 1982 he was traded by the Mariners to the Milwaukee Brewers for Thad Bosley. He never made a Major League roster after this.

In 1993 he was named to the Ventura County Sports Hall of Fame.[1]
