Rodney Roy Beck was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the San Francisco Giants (1991-1997), Chicago Cubs (1998-1999), Boston Red Sox (1999-2001), and San Diego Padres (2003-2004). Rod, his nickname, was a dominant closer during his tenure, relying on a nasty set of breaking pitches (sinker, slider, splitter) rather than the fastball.

In 1993 , Randy Myers became the first Chicago Cubs pitcher to record 50-or-more saves during the same season, finishing the year with a franchise record 53 saves. Five years later (in 1998 ), Rod Beck became the second Cubbie twirler with at least fifty saves, finishing the year with 51 saves, the most during a season in Chicago by a left-handed pitcher. The pair remain, through today , the only Cubs ' pitchers to eclipse fifty saves during the same season.

The Rolaids Relief Man Award was an annual baseball award given from 1976 to 2012, to the top relief pitchers in the American and National League, respectively, at the completion of each regular season. In 1994 , Rod Beck led the National League in games finished, saved 28 games, did not have a single blown save , and won the Relief Man - the first and only (due to it being discontinued) San Francisco Giants pitcher to receive the honor.

Did you know that during the decade of '90s (1990-1999), Rod Beck saved 260 games, seventh most during that era, behind John Wetteland (295), Dennis Eckersley (293), Randy Myers (291), Jeff Montgomery (285), Rick Aguilera (292) and John Franco (268)?
