Richard Michael "Goose" Gossage

Richard Michael "Goose" Gossage

Pitcher

Richard Michael "Goose" Gossage (born July 5, 1951 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is a retired right-handed relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who played 22 seasons from 1972 to 1994 for nine different teams, spending his best years with the New York Yankees and San Diego Padres.

The nickname "Goose" is a play on his surname. Although otherwise known as "Rich" in popular media, to himself and his friends he goes by "Rick".

He led the American League in saves three times and was runnerup twice; by the end of the 1987 season he ranked second in major league history in career saves, trailing only Rollie Fingers, although by the end of his career his final total of 310 had slipped to fourth all-time.
