Bruce Sutter St Louis Cardinals

Bruce-Sutter-St-Louis-Cardinalsnals

Howard Bruce Sutter was a fantastic right-handed relief pitcher and closer. He was said to be the first pitcher to make effective use of the split-finger fastball. He dominated in the late 1970s and early 1980s becoming the only pitcher to lead the National League in saves five times (1979–1982, 1984). In 1979, Sutter won the NL’s Cy Young Award as the league’s top pitcher. 1982 he helped the Cardinals win the World Series and appropriately closed out the Milwaukee Brewers in Game Seven. This piece commemorates that accomplishment.
