    Re: Recent Deaths in the Sports World

    Luis Arroyo was arguably one of the early models for the modern "closer" role, when starters were still expected to finish games with a lead. In 1961 he was retroactively credited with 29 saves ( the "save" stat wasn't yet invented). Curiously, he also went 15-5 in decisions that year, though he averaged less than two innings per game.

    I seem to recall that when Whitey Ford gave his HOF induction speech, he said something like " They gave me nine minutes to speak. I'll speak for eight, and let Arroyo do the last minute!"
