Career Leaders for Saves

The pressure is intense as you step onto the mound — knowing you only have to pitch an inning or two at most. However, you also know that the entire game is riding on your skill as a pitcher who should be able to "mow" down the opposing batters and save the game for a team victory.

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the top one-hundred all-time career leaders in Major League games saved. Note: A bold faced entry denotes that the player was active during the previous Major League season.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Trevor Hoffman is a Hall of Famer, in my opinion. So is Mariano Rivera. Look, Yogi Berra once said, 'If you ain't got relief pitching, you ain't got nothing.' So where in my mind do you think Trevor Hoffman figures? Relief pitchers are critical." - Commissioner Bud Selig on MLB.com (Bryan Hoch, 01/04/09, Are today's closers Hall-worthy?)

baseball almanac fast facts

Do you know who was the first Major League closer inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame? Need a (really big) hint? He is ranked tenth in all-time / career games saved.

Great idea for a theme releated autograph ball: the 300 Saves Club as every member in this closer club is still living and eighteen "stopper" signatures on the same baseball would look incredibly great.

Will four-hundred plus saves be the new standard by which great closers are judged? If they reach that plateau, do they deserve to be enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame due to that stat? How about closers with three-hundred plus career saves — do they deserve recognition? Share your opinion on Baseball Fever .
