Between 1975 and 1998, he pitched for the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals. Eckersley had success as a starter, but gained his greatest fame as a closer, becoming the first of two pitchers in MLB history to have both a 20-win season and a 50-save season in a career...

The thing that got me over the hump was accepting that I had to do whatever I could to stay in the game.
I think today the players are too nice to one another, but that might change with the unbalanced schedule, with teams playing each other more and more. When you face each other that much, with that much at stake, something's bound to happen.
Later, I could take something off my slider and I could make my fastball sink, so I really had four pitches.
I always had the attitude that I wanted to throw a no-hitter every game.
Pitching... sometimes I did so poorly, it brought me to tears.
