Happy Reds birthday, Don Gullett!


January 6, 1951

Don Gullett played for three consecutive World Series winners: the Reds (1975-1976) and the Yankees (1977). The pitching staff of the Big Red Machine era is often overlooked, but Gullett was a fine starter, winning 91 games in seven seasons and twice finishing in the top ten for Cy Young Award consideration. Gullett pitched for the St. Lucie Legends of the Senior Professional Baseball Association in 1989, and returned to the Reds as a pitching coach from 1993 through 2005.
