Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We're normal people, too. If they (the fans) got to sit down and have dinner with us, talk with us, I don't think they would react the same way they do when they come to the ballpark and scream and yell." - Rick Honeycutt in Baseball Digest (November 1991, Casey Tefertiller, "Players Express Their Views About the Game and Themselves")

On August 19, 1983, the Texas Rangers sent Rick Honeycutt to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Dave Stewart and Ricky Wright . At the time of his trade, from an American League (AL) team to a National League team, Honeycutt was leading all junior circuit twirlers in earned run average (ERA), he had qualified for the ERA Champion , and he "won" the ERA Championship - the first pitcher from the Rangers (and through today their only pitcher) to lead the AL in earned run average . Note: When the franchise was located in Washington, D.C., Dick Donovan (2.40 ERA in 1961) & Dick Bosman (2.19 in 1969) led the AL.

The ESPN Page 2 staff once wrote an excellent article called the Biggest cheaters in baseball , where their team of expert baseball analysts ranked the ten worst cheaters in baseball history. Rick Honeycutt did not make the final cut, but he did received an "honorable" mention:

Rick Honeycutt ( Mariners , Rangers , Dodgers , Athletics , Yankees , Cardinals )

When pitching for the Mariners against the Royals on Sept. 30, 1980 , Honeycutt taped a thumbtack to his finger to cut the ball. Willie Wilson , after hitting a double, spotted the tack from second base. When the umps came out to have a look, they not only found the tack, but also a gash in Honeycutt's forehead -- he had rubbed his face absentmindedly, almost poking his eye out in the process.

"I should have known right then that it wasn't going to work," he later said. "It didn't do anything for me. I didn't know what I was doing at the time. I only did it once and I did it badly and got caught at it. I was really struggling at the time. We were getting ready to go out onto the field, and I passed a bulletin board and there was a tack in it. I put it on the middle finger of my glove hand." Honeycutt was ejected, suspended for 10 games, and fined $250.

Did you know that Rick Honeycutt - who has appeared in one National League Division Series game, three National League Championship Series games, four American League Championship Series game, and three World Series games - has thirty postseason relief appearances, and a perfect 3-0 record?
