Don Stanhouse – 1973 Topps #352

Donald Joseph Stanhouse (born February 12, 1951, in Du Quoin, Illinois) is a retired baseball pitcher who had a ten-year major league career from 1972–1980, 1982. He played for the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles of the American League and the Montreal Expos and Los Angeles Dodgers of the National League. Stanhouse finished 3rd in the American League in both 1978 & 1979 in saves, recording 45 over that span, helping the Orioles capture the American League Championship in 1979. He was selected to the American League All-Star team in 1979. Stanhouse had a reputation of walking batters he was not willing to face. Frequently his tactics would lead to dangerous situations in close games with multiple base-runners. Stanhouse retired after a brief comeback with the Orioles.
