Eli Grba (born August 9, 1934, in Chicago, Illinois) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. During his 5-year baseball career, he pitched for the New York Yankees (1959–1960) and Los Angeles Angels (1961–1963). He was the first selection in the 1960 MLB expansion draft, and he became a charter member of the Angels. He started the first game in club history on April 11, 1961, pitching nine innings in a 7-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. He spent two full seasons in the Angels' starting rotation, and held the team's all-time wins record (19 wins) at the end of the second season. Unfortunately, he also held the team's all-time losses record (22 losses). His major league career ended during the 1963 season when he was only 28 years old.
