Bruce Sutter

Here's our writeup at Just One Bad Century about today's birthday boy, Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter...

~Bruce Sutter 1953 (Cubs 1976-1980)
Bruce Sutter is a Hall of Famer, but of course, he’s not wearing a Cubs hat even though he had his best and most dominating seasons on the North Side of Chicago. He was a six-time All-Star including four times with the Cubs. He won the Cy Young Award in 1979 for a very mediocre Cubs team. He led the league in saves 5 times. And he won the World Series with the 1982 St. Louis Cardinals. Bruce Sutter was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006; his 13th season on the ballot. (Photo: Topps 1977 Baseball Card)

Other Cubs celebrating birthdays today include a man named Twitch, another one hit by lightning, and a Cub who recently left the team. Check them out here.
