St. Louis Cardinals

All Time Closer

Bruce Sutter

Bruce Sutter

When MLB went about selecting its All Century Team, The Sporting News (long time based in St. Louis) selected an all time St. Louis Cardinals team--one that would give the all time MLB team a good contest.

Master of the split finger fastball, Sutter lead the National League in saves three times (with a high of 45 in 1984). He recorded the final out in the 1982 World Series by striking out Milwaukee Brewers' Gordon Thomas.
