Adam Loewen

Adam Loewen was supposed to be great. He was supposed to be an ace pitcher. Once touted as the best prospect with the Baltimore Orioles, Canadian-born Loewen’s career began like no other before him. He pitched for Team Canada at the 2006 World Baseball Classic, earning a win against Team USA before Canada was eliminated. Two months later, he began his Major League Baseball career. In his first four starts, he faced off against Randy Johnson, Tom Glavine, and Roy Halladay twice to become the first pitcher to face four Cy Young winners in the first four starts of his career.
