Here's a musical tribute for the ages.

That was great! The 11-4 season is why I have such good memories of him.

Also, a very good 1975-76 as set-up man and closer (15 total saves). In 1978, he filled in ably as a starter when our staff was dying like poisoned cattle.

Sadly, when Gossage got hurt in that stupid fight with Cliff Johnson he was called on to close, sucked, and was traded (As opposed to today, when endless suckitude in the closer's role is not only tolerated but encouraged.).

Nice career in the front office later. But hey, our little man doesn't need any help there, and never has!

I won $29,000,000 in the power ball lottery, I took advice from a person who talked about this great spell caster called Dr. OKOYE. The person placed a testimonies on a blog saying how Dr. OKOYE helped him win the lottery by sending him the winning number. I was curious and I thought it was all a joke not until I contacted this spell caster to know for myself how this works cause I have spent a lot buying tickets and I never win. I contacted he and him told me the necessary thing that need to be done and i did it and his told me to wait for 3 days and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which i did, Can you believe my name was the first winner that is how i won {$29,000,000} Contact him on or Whatsapp +2348109476757 Dr OKOYE is the only answer to that your problem of winning the lottery
