Ken Hill pitched parts of four seasons with the Cardinals, 1988-1991, before being traded to the Montreal Expos for Andres Galarraga in a one-for-one trade on November 25 1991. With the Expos in 1992 Ken Hill enjoyed his best season, compiling a solid 16-9 record, with a very fine 2.68 earned run average, had 3 shutouts in 33 starts.
In 1993 Ken Hill started strongly, winning four of his first 5 starts in April and had a miserly 1.80 ERA and was chosen the NL Pitcher of the Month. May was a different story. Running the bases he had a groin strain and was limited in his innings, but still somehow managed to start June with a team best 6-0 record. But after five starts he went on the disabled list. Ken Hill finished that season with a 9-5 record. He followed that with a 16-5 mark, with a 3.32 ERA in 1994 and then, was traded back to St Louis. Ken Hill pitched until mid 2001 and won 117 career games.
A very pleasant person, Ken Hill always found time to sign autographs and was a fans favorite wherever he played. Baseball Historian
