Philip Ramond "the Vulture" Regan (born April 6, 1937 in Otsego, Michiganmarker) is a former professional baseball player.

Early life and high school

Regan attended Wayland Union High School from 1951 to 1955 where he earned varsity letters in football, basketball, and baseball.

Professional playing career

Regan was a starting pitcher, and relief pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, and very briefly, the Chicago White Sox. He made 105 starts in his career, and pitched in 551 games.

His best season came with the Dodgers in when he went 14-1 with a 1.62 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 116 innings pitched as a reliever. That year, Regan's knack for earning wins in late-inning relief situations caused Sandy Koufax to nickname him "The Vulture".

In his career, he went 96-81 with a 3.84 ERA and 92 saves. He accumulated 743 strikeouts in 1372 innings pitched.

Professional coaching career

In 1973, Regan began his coaching career as the head coach at Grand Valley State Universitymarker, serving in this capacity until 1982. The following year, he began coaching for Major League Baseball, first serving as a minor league pitching instructor and advance scout for the Seattle Mariners in 1983, and then as the Mariners' pitching coach from 1984 to 1986. In 1987, he began a six year stint with the Los Angeles Dodgers as their major league special assignment and advance scout. In the strike-shortened 1994 season, Regan again served as pitching coach, this time for the Cleveland Indians. The following season, he served as manager of the Baltimore Orioles, finishing with a record of 71-73. The remainder of his professional coaching career is summarized below:
