Larry Duane Harlow (born November 13, 1951 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is a retired professional baseball player who played 6 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Baltimore Orioles and California Angels.
Harlow was signed by the Baltimore Orioles as an amateur free agent on August 24, 1970. He played parts of four seasons with the Orioles before being traded to the California Angels for Floyd Rayford and cash on June 5, 1979. Most of Harlow's career highs came during the 1978 season with Baltimore when he scored 67 runs, recorded 112 hits, and 14 stolen bases. Harlow played his final MLB game on October 3, 1981, finishing with a career .248 batting average.
Harlow made a lone pitching appearance on June 26, 1978. After three Orioles pitchers surrendered a combined 19 runs in just four innings, manager Earl Weaver placed Harlow in the game to start the fifth inning. Harlow did not fare much better, allowing five runs in just two-thirds of an inning. He was relieved by another position player, Elrod Hendricks. Harlow's career ERA is 67.50, with four walks, a home run allowed, a wild pitch, and one strikeout to his credit.
