The 100 Greatest Angels - #64, Doug Corbett

#64 - Doug Corbett, - Righty Reliever

Career Stats

Doug Corbett was the bridge between the starting pitching and Donnie Moore in the 1986 pennant race. He amassed 10 saves that season himself and spent 4+ years finishing 98 games in an Angels uniform. He was the winning pitcher in Game 4 of the 1986 ALCS, making him, for years, the answer to the trivia question: Who was the last pitcher to get a postseason win? He held this distinction from October 11, 1986 until October 2, 2002, when Francisco Rodriguez was the winning pitcher in Game 2 of the ALDS (it was Frankie's first victory at the major league level). Paul Byrd is the answer to the question now.

Would the Angels have won the West in 1986 without Corbett? Perhaps. But he was a solid constant in the pen during a golden half-decade in team history, and he is #64 here today because of it.
