SANTA ANA (AP) — Former All-Star pitcher Matt Keough has been sentenced to a year in jail for driving drunk near his Orange County home.

Keough was sentenced Thursday to a year but got 194 days of credit for time served and good behavior.

He was arrested last year after running a stop sign. His blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.

Keough also pleaded guilty to DUI in 2005 and in 2008 got 180 days in jail for violating probation by drinking.

Keough pitched for the Oakland Athletics from 1977-83, making the 1978 All-Star team. He later played with the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros.

His estranged wife, Jeana, appeared on TV’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

    If my wife, spent money like water, like his did? I’d probably drink too. She certainly didn’t mind spending all he had on stupid, nonsensical BS, she didnt need? It was HIS $$$ that helped her get on tv.

    You should know your facts before you comment. She has her own money. She has been a successful real estate agent for years. He is clearly an alcoholic who needs help. He was a miserable husband and father to his family and favored alcohol over everything else.

    Does Matt still offer pitching lessons?

      He is lucky he’s not killed anyone. I bet being locked up does this POS NO good. He is beyond repair. His oldest son seems to have inherited his same personality. I hope he learns from his dad’s mistakes.

    His oldest son thinks he is good at baseball, but he really sucks…he would not have even gotten into ‘A’ ball if his dad did not scout for the A’s. He batted .223 this year. Time to trade in that bat for a briefcase Shane.
