Samuel Richard “Dick” Coffman (December 18, 1906 - March 24, 1972) was one of the first pitchers in Major League history to appear in more than 300 games as a reliever. Coffman was utilized as a starter for only six of his 15 seasons, as he displayed better success coming out of the bullpen. During his career, he started 132 games, but finished 194 (twice leading the National League) and added 38 saves. He enjoyed his most successful year in 1938 when he went 8-4 in 51 games, 35 of which he finished and 12 saves in 111.1 innings pitched. Dick pitched 15 years for the Washington Senators (1927, 1932), the St. Louis Browns (1928-1932, 1933-1935), the New York Giants (1936-1939), the Boston Braves (1940) and the Philadelphia Phillies (1945). Dick Coffman finished his career with a 72-95 record with 372 strikeouts and a 4.65 career ERA.
