Happy Birthday ‘Rags’!!!
Today, Dave Righetti turns 51 years old. This former Rookie of the Year award winner was one of baseball’s most dominant relievers in the 1980’s. Righetti is one of the very few pitchers that was converted to a closer after spending the first 3 full seasons as a starter for the New York Yankees. It seems to have paid off as ‘Rags’ finished hi career with 252 career saves.
