Ed Glynn

1979 Topps

Between 1975 and 1985, Glynn pitched in 175 major league games, going 12-17 with 12 saves. He came up with the Detroit Tigers, appearing in 26 games over the first four years of his big-league career. He joined the New York Mets in 1979 and pitched in 46 games out of their bullpen. He saved seven games for the Mets that season and appeared in another 38 games the following year. Glynn pitched in 47 games for the Cleveland Indians in 1982, posting a career-high with five wins. He pitched one more season for the Tribe before spending 1984 in AAA. His final major league appearances came in 1985 when he pitched in three games for the Montreal Expos.


As he notes on his questionnaire, Glynn had a very impressive major league debut. It came on September 19, 1975 for the Tigers when he entered a 4-4 game with the Boston Red Sox and promptly struck out Carl Yastrzemski and Fred Lynn. Glynn ended up taking the loss in the game though as he gave up a two-run base hit to Rico Petrocelli in the fifth.
