Landrum bounced around for a decade before catching fire with the Pirates in 1989.
Picked up in desperation to replace injured bullpen stopper Jim Gott
, Landrum had
a 0.21 ERA in his first 28 appearances. He finished the year with 26 saves and a
1.67 ERA. His father, Joe Landrum
, pitched for the Dodgers in 1950 and 1952.
