Which Pitchers Did This?

On this day in 1992 Scott Sanderson became the ninth pitcher to record a win against all 26 current baseball teams.  Can you name the other eight without looking it up?  Did any of these nine guys also get wins against the Rockies (1993), Marlins (1993), Diamondbacks (1998) and Devil Rays (1998)?

Of course I want to know who did this and ended up on a Kellogg's card.  That narrows it down a bit.  Of the nine, six of them were featured on at least one Kellogg's card from 1970 to 1983.

None of these pitchers from this list have defeated all 30 teams.  I cheated and looked it up.

  1. I'm gonna guess Ryan, Sutton Gaylord Perry. All 30 how about Randy Johnson, Schilling, I think Lackey just recently did this

  2. How about P. Niekro or T. John.

  3. Tommy John - yes.
    Phil Niekro - no.

    I like doing this because it forces me to use my brain. Supposedly, if you don't use it you lose it. I don't want to find out.

    Niekro got to 25 of the 26 teams. Here's the problem - he only played for one NL team.

  4. FYI - I didn't know these answers at all. I'm just looking these up online.

  5. Ryan, Sutton, Perry and John are correct. Four down and four to go.

    Correct on Lackey, Schilling and Johnson with wins against all 30 teams.

    1. I would guess that Bartolo Colon has beaten all 30, too.

  6. Colon is 0-2 against Arizona. I'm more focused on the 26 teams that existed during the Kellogg's card era (1970 -1983). One of the pitchers not mentioned also had at least one save against each team.

  7. The only pitcher that jumped out at me was Nolan Ryan. Pedro Martinez comes to mind too... but I guess he was born way too late.

  8. Pedro never defeated the Red Sox (0-1).

  9. Greg Maddux never defeated six AL teams since he only had inter-league games to get those wins.
