Kerry Wood is an American former Major League Baseball pitcher. During his career he played for the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, and New York Yankees.
Wood first came to prominence as a 20-year-old rookie when he recorded 20 strikeouts in a one-hit shutout against the Houston Astros, which some have argued may be the greatest single-game pitching performance in Major League Baseball history. The game also made Wood the co-holder of the MLB record for strikeouts in a single game (20), and earned Wood the nickname Kid K. He was later named the 1998 National League Rookie of the Year. Wood would go on to record more than 200 strikeouts in four out of his first five seasons, with a high of 266 in 2003, and holds several MLB strikeout records. In particular, in MLB history, he is second only to Randy Johnson in career strikeout-per-9-innings.
Though he struggled with injuries throughout his career, Wood was twice named an All-Star. Wood transitioned to a relief pitcher in 2007 due to continued struggles with injuries, ultimately reviving his career as a closer. After a slow start to the 2012 season, Wood retired on May 18, 2012.
While playing for the Cubs, the Woods hosted a celebrity bowling tournament called Kerry Wood's Strike Zone, which also featured a silent auction that raised more than $2 million.
