Biographical Information[edit]

Doug Corbett's first two seasons were his best two seasons. Debuting with the Minnesota Twins in 1980, he made a career best 73 appearances out of the bullpen and saved 23 games, finishing 8-6, 1.98 and third in the American League Rookie of the Year vote. In the strike-shortened 1981 season, he led the American League in appearances (54) and games finished (45) with another 17 saves, going 2-6, 2.57 and making his lone All-Star Game trip. Everything went wrong the next season, 1982, as he finished 1-9, 5.13 while being traded to the California Angels partway through the year. He was plenty good in middle relief in 1984 (5-1, 2.12 in 45 games) but washed out after three more seasons, the last with the Baltimore Orioles in 1987. In 1989 and 1990, he saved seven games while pitching for the Orlando Juice of the Senior Professional Baseball Association, later becoming one of the very few All-Stars to cross the picket line as a potential replacement player in 1995.
