Re your comment below:

"I mentioned Richard Rosen whose protagonist, Harvey Blissberg, was a retired pitcher turned detective. I thought the first book in the series, Strike Three, You're Dead, was the best of the series."

If I remember correctly, in STRIKE THREE, YOU'RE DEAD
(and Edgar-winner in teh 1st Novel categroy, BTW)), Blissburg was still an active Major League ballplayer.
 And he wasn't a pitcher; he was a power hitter and, as I recall, an outfielder.

He becomes a novice PI in the second book in the series, FADEAWAY.
