Hitters Fail the Quiz 4/13/13

Hey baseball fans!

Sorry I haven't posted in about five days. Anyway, I have a one question "quiz" for you. Who has the best mustache in Royals relief history, other than Al Hrabosky? The answer is, of course, Dan Quisenberry!

Quisenberry played for the Royals, Cardinals, and Giants from 1979-1990. As a reliever, he was feared throughout the majors because of his scary submarine delivery, which saved him 244 games in his career. Along with being 33rd on the all-time saves list, "Q" also has a lifetime 2.76 ERA. That's better than Dennis Eckersley, Bruce Sutter and Goose Gossage!

He played with the Royals from 1979-1988 and his great pitching made KC a powerhouse in the AL for most of his stay in Kauffman Stadium. Actually, he even won a World Series ring, which he got in 1985 with the Royals, as he went 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in 4.1 innings pitched against the Cardinals in seven games.

Ultimately, if he had played another five or six years, I think he would definitely be in the Hall of Fame. Sadly, he is not currently in the Hall, but he is still remembered fondly by Royals fans as a great pitcher during a time when baseball was great in Missouri.

Unfortunately, Dan died in 1998 at the age of 45 due to brain cancer, but he is still part of the MLB community in our hearts.


Well, that's Quiz for you. I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading it. Check back in a couple of days for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
