Rinold George “Ryne” Duren (February 22, 1929 - January 6, 2011) spent a decade as a relief pitcher for seven different teams, and is remembered by many for his blistering fastball as well as his dramatic entrances from the New York Yankees bullpen. Duren signed with the St. Louis Browns as a free agent in 1949, but didn’t debut with the club until they had relocated and become the Baltimore Orioles (1954) … and then for only a single game. Following a return to the minor leagues, he was traded to the Kansas City Athletics (1957), where he appeared in 14 games, before moving on to the New York Yankees (1958-1961), recording a league-leading 20 saves in 1958 while going 6-4 and finishing second (behind Albie Pearson) in American League Rookie of the Year voting. In 1959, he posted a 1.88 ERA — the best of his career. While with the Yankees, his habit of hopping the bullpen fence … rather than use the gate … became a familiar site. After being traded to the Los Angeles Angels (1961-1962), Duren went on to pitch for the Philadelphia Phillies (1963-1964, 1965), Cincinnati Reds (1964), and Washington Senators (1965). In 10 seasons, Duren had a 27-44 record and a 3.83 ERA.
