(WTNH) — One of the many memorable appearances of Rich “Goose” Gossage during his Hall of Fame career was when Gossage threw the pitch to George Brett 38 years ago.
A career that started in the 70s and ended in the 90s. Gossage won a World Series title in 1978 with the Yankees. The same year New York came from 14 games behind the Red Sox — the catch and beat them in a one-game playoff.
Gossage recently spoke with Inside NY Baseball on his falling out with the Yankees front office and shared some great stories of his days in pinstripes.
