Rick Leach Baseball First baseman

Richard Max "Rick" Leach (born May 4, 1957) is a former college football player and professional baseball player. He played quarterback at the University of Michigan from 1975 to 1978. Leach later played in Major League Baseball for four different teams primarily as a backup outfielder and first baseman from 1981 to 1990. In 2008, Leach was elected to the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. Leach was a star quarterback at the University of Michigan from 1975 to 1978 under legendary coach Bo Schembechler. He was the first NCAA Division I FBS player to pass for 200 points and score 200 points. He continues to hold the NCAA record for highest percentage of passes for touchdowns (400-499 attempts) with 45 in 462. A left-hander, he was given the starting job before his freshman year and held it until he graduated four years later. In his freshman year, with the Big Ten championship and a berth to the 1976 Rose Bowl on the line in the Michigan-Ohio State game, Leach threw an interception that was run back to the Michigan 3-yard line by Ray Griffin and set up the winning touchdown in a 21-14 Buckeye victory. However, Leach and the Wolverines never lost to Ohio State again in his career.
