Shane Rawley

1979 Topps

An all star in 1986, Shane Rawley pitched for 12 years in the majors, posting a 111-118 record with a 4.02 ERA and 40 saves, while playing for the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, and Minnesota Twins from 1978-1989. Rawley pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen when he broke in with the Mariners. He became a starter after being traded to the Yankees in 1982. This started a string of six-straight seasons where Rawley won at least 10 games. His best year was 1987 when he won 17 games for the Phillies. He went 11-7 with a 3.54 ERA for Philadelphia in 1986, which was the year he was chosen to play in the Midsummer Classic.

Rawley won the 100th game of his career on May 16, 1988 at Candlestick Park. He gave up two hits and led the Phillies to a 3-0 win.
