Born in Pueblo Viejo, Dominican Republic, in 1966, Jose Mesa made his Major League Baseball debut on September 10, 1987 for the Baltimore Orioles.

Mesa is a two-time MLB All-Star (1995, 1996), and earned American League Rolaids Relief Man of the Year honors in 1995, the same year he led the American League in saves. Mesa pitched in more than one thousand career games, amassing an 80-109 win-loss record. He finished his career with an earned run average of 4.36 to go along with 1,038 strikeouts and more than 300 saves. Mesa made headlines for his dispute with his ex-teammate, Omar Vizquel, after Vizquel spoke poorly of Mesa's performance during Game 7 of the World Series in 1997. Mesa retaliated by threatening to hit Vizquel with a pitch every opportunity he gets. Mesa was also arrested on rape and gross sexual imposition charges in Ohio in 1996; about six months later, he was acquitted.
