Mike LaValliere

Signed by the Philadelphia Phillies as an amateur free agent in 1981, LaValliere started out as a third baseman but was converted to catcher in 1982. He was sent to the St. Louis Cardinals during the 1984 season as part of a conditional deal. Signing with the Cards as a free agent in 1985, LaValliere spent two years with the club, which included a trip to the World Series. Excellent at throwing out potential base stealers, he won a Gold Glove award in 1987. For his career, he threw out 36.8% of potential base stealers.

In spring training of the 1987 season, LaValliere was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates alongside Andy Van Slyke and Mike Dunne in exchange for fellow catcher Tony Peña. LaValliere and Van Slyke later became stalwarts on the hugely successful Pirates teams of the early 1990s, when Pittsburgh went to three consecutive National League Championship Series from 1990 to 1992. Unfortunately for the Pirates, they lost in all three of their NLCS appearances, in 1990 to the eventual World champion Cincinnati Reds and in 1991 and 1992 to the Atlanta Braves. In the 1992 NLCS, LaValliere was involved in the famous final play of Game 7, as Atlanta first baseman Sid Bream slid and just barely beat the tag to score the Series-winning run for the Braves.

During the 1993 season, LaValliere was released by Pittsburgh, and signed a contract with the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox won the American League West division title, but lost in the ALCS to the eventual World champion Toronto Blue Jays. LaValliere would spend two more seasons in Chicago before retiring.

LaValliere has made Bradenton his home since 1988 and has coached at all levels of baseball from Catching Instructor with the Pittsburgh Pirates in Spring Training, working with catchers at SCF, head coach of St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and IMG Academy JV varsity as well as coaching numerous travel teams of all ages. From 2007 to 2012 LaValliere and Don Robinson ran “The Big League Experience” a baseball and softball training facility.
