RIP - Lindy McDaniel

Lindy McDaniel, a relief pitcher for the Cardinals, Yankees, and others for 21 seasons, passed away on November 14, 2020 at age 84.
McDaniel began his career in 1955 with the Cardinals, and except for 1957 and 1958, was mostly a reliever throughout his career. 
In 1960 he made both All-Star squads, and finished 3rd in the Cy Young voting. 
McDaniel also played for the Cubs from 1963-65, and the Giants from 1966-68 before settling in with the Yankees from July 1968 through the 1973 season. He finished up with the Royals from 1974-75.
McDaniel pitched 987 games over 21 seasons, but his teams never made the post-season.
