A’s statement on the passing of pitcher Ken Holtzman

April 15th, 2024

We are saddened by the passing of former A’s pitcher Ken Holtzman. The two-time All-Star and three-time World Series Champion with the Green and Gold, Holtzman created lasting memories for our franchise. We send our deepest condolences to his three daughters, Robyn, Stacy, and Lauren; his four grandchildren; and all who loved him.

A St. Louis, Missouri, native, Holtzman pitched in Major League Baseball from 1965 to 1979 for the Chicago Cubs, Oakland A’s, Baltimore Orioles, and New York Yankees.
