Palmer was one of baseball’s premier pitchers in the 1970s, throwing more innings and recording more wins than any other American League pitcher during that decade. Palmer, who spent his entire 19-year career with the Orioles, was a three-time AL Cy Young award winner and finished in the top five among Cy Young voters eight times. Palmer was the runner up to Reggie Jackson for MVP in 1973, when he led a starting rotation that included Mike Cuellar, Dave McNally and Doyle Alexander. More than just a terrific pitcher, Palmer also fielded his position well, collecting four Gold Glove Awards.
A six-time all-star, Palmer was an excellent postseason pitcher who pitched in six World Series and won three rings, going 8-3, 2.61 between the World Series and the ALCS. When Palmer beat the Phillies in Game 3 of the 1983 World Series, he became the first pitcher in major league history to win a World Series game in three different decades. He also threw a no-hitter against Oakland in 1969 and, remarkably, never surrendered a grand slam in his entire career.
