Wolverine Biography: Steve Howe

As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been doing some research on the Michigan baseball program and the players in it.  Steve Howe, a name many of you over the age of 30 probably remember a bit more clearly, played for the Wolverines in the late 1970s, and threw a one-hitter in the College World Series.  His pro career started great, but in the end, it was plagued by drug use.

I feel the story is too long to post here, so I’ve posted it over on my personal site. I’ll have an abridged version sometime in February as I build up to next season.

    Use to joke that Howe would snort the white chalk lines at Dodger Stadium…

    Steve Howe was a fantastic pitcher with electric stuff. A great Wolverine then, now, & always. Beset by demons he was unable to control, Steve is hopefully in a better place. RIP

    Looking forward to the Barry Larkin Bio

    Howe certainly had problems. Wasn’t he the guy that MLB let back in again and again?
