Longest span between saves

Postby utterchaos » Wed Jul 20, 2005 2:34 pm

Curt Schilling just got his first save in over 13 years. Since the save became an official statistic in 1969 only one person has gone longer between saves.

Who is he?

The answer I was looking for was 14 years by Mike Flanagan who went between saves from 1977 to 1991.

Tommy John was close going from 1965 to 1978 but that was before the save became an official statistic in 1969. The unofficial record of time between saves would be 20 years by Steve Carlton from 1967 to 1987.
