Career highlights and awards

John David Burkett (born November 28, 1964) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He compiled 166 wins, 1,766 strikeouts, and a 4.31 earned run average. He pitched from 1987 to 2003, with the San Francisco Giants, Florida Marlins, Texas Rangers, Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox. His best season came in 1993 when he went 22–7 with a 3.65 ERA for the Giants. Burkett was a National League All-Star in 1993 and 2001. After being released in Spring Training by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2000, he was picked up by the Atlanta Braves and resurrected a career thought to be over by many. His 3.04 ERA was 3rd in all of MLB for 2001. Burkett retired following the 2003 season after going 12–9 with the Red Sox at age 38. He was given the nickname "Sheets" during his days with the Atlanta Braves because of his betting and organizing pools for games in the clubhouse. His 1996 postseason complete game win vs the eventual WS Champion New York Yankees, was the first complete game in Divisional Series history and the first postseason win in Texas Rangers history.

Burkett is also a part-time professional bowler, and has 32 perfect games to his credit. He's cashed in several PBA events during his baseball days and joined the PBA50 (Bowling's Senior Tour) in 2015. He finished 15th in the 2015 Suncoast PBA Senior US Open and 4th at PBA50 Northern California Classic. His 2016 campaign was cut short when he had right ankle surgery. 2017 PBA50 season top finishes were 11th in PBA50 National Championship, 24th at the Senior US OPEN,11th at Dave Small's Championship Lanes Classic and 9th at the DeHayes Insurance Group Championship.

He has six children named Avery, Maxwell, Reid, Meg, Rachel, and Madison. Both Reid and Meg attend Southern Methodist University.
