On this day in, January 8, in 1953 Bruce Sutter was born. Twenty-nine years later he would strike out Gorman Thomas to earn the save and secure the win in the deciding game of the 1982 World Series. In a twelve-season career, Sutter earned 300 saves with a 2.83 ERA, 2.94 FIP (per Fangraphs), and 19.2 fWAR. Today the former Cy Young winner, World Series Champion, All Star, and current baseball Hall of Famer turns sixty-five years old.

Happy birthday, Bruce!
