The new all-time saves leader in Major League Baseball. Sunday was save #479 for Trevor Hoffman as he pitched a perfect ninth inning to nail down the Padres victory over the Pirates.
When pitching at home, Trevor takes the mound to the sounds of Hells Bells by ACDC blasting over the Petco Park P.A. system. I was going to embed an mp3 in the blog post, but decided that I didn't quite want to go that far.
He's a sure fire hall-of-famer and one of the main reasons why the Padres should win the West this year and have a legitimate shot at going all the way to the World Series. However, they play their last 7 games on the road at St. Louis and Arizona so it is not going to be easy for them to stay ahead of the hated Dodgers. Go Padres!!
