Mike Marshall

Marshall led the league in saves with three different teams: Montreal in 1973, Los Angeles in 1974, and Minnesota in 1979. In each of those seasons, Marshall was named Fireman of the Year by Rolaids and The Sporting News. He had one of the best screwballs of all-time and he knew how to throw it as well as anyone ever has. He teaches young players the mechanics of pitching now. He’s a bit character in one of the best baseball books ever written, “Ball Four” by Jim Bouton. Do yourself a favor and read it.
