Philip Ramond "the Vulture" Regan (born April 6, 1937 in Otsego, Michigan) is a former professional baseball player. Regan attended Wayland Union High School from 1951 to 1955 where he earned varsity letters in football, basketball, and baseball. Regan was a starting pitcher, and relief pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, and very briefly, the Chicago White Sox. He made 105 starts in his career, and pitched in 551 games. His best season came with the Dodgers in 1966 when he went 14-1 with a 1.62 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 116 innings pitched as a reliever. That year, Regan's knack for earning wins in late-inning relief situations caused Sandy Koufax to nickname him "The Vulture". In his career, he went 96-81 with a 3.84 ERA and 92 saves. He accumulated 743 strikeouts in 1372 innings pitched. In 1973, Regan began his coaching career as the head coach at Grand Valley State University, serving in this capacity until 1982. The following year, he began coaching for Major League Baseball, first serving as a minor league pitching instructor and advance scout for the Seattle Mariners in 1983, and then as the Mariners' pitching coach from 1984 to 1986.
