Remembering a Great Career

On this day in 1998 Dan Quisenberry passed away.  As the post-season nears, it is easy to remember him in the post-season as a Royal in the early 1980s.

He was a force in the AL from his second through seventh seasons in the majors.  In those six years he finished in the top five of the Cy Young voting five times.  He led the league in saves in each of those five years.

Even though he led the league in saves in 1980 and finished 8th in the MVP voting, he didn't get into the 1981 set.  

In a previous post I already mentioned the uncorrected error with the spelling of his name.
