We say happy # 58 to Dave Righetti born in San Jose, California.

Dave broke with the Yankees in 1979 but did not join the rotation until 1981.   He spent the 1980′s with New York saving over 200 games.    

Unfortunately, he missed the pennant teams but did pitch in the 1981 post season when he was also voted AL Rookie of the Year.

On July 4, 1983, Dave pitched a no hitter against the Red Sox.   He was 10-3 at that point and finished 14-8, or his best season as a starter.

He is now the Giants’ pitching coach and a part of the team that won The World Series in 2010, 2012 & 2014.
