Don Gullett

Class of 2002

I wasn't nervous a bit going in there. Talking to all these reporters is a lot tougher than facing Willie Stargell or Roberto Clemente

- Nineteen-year-old Don Gullet after Game 2 of the 1970 NLCS during which he had pitched 3.1 shutout innings against a Pirates lineup that featured two future Hall of Famers

Don Gullet was born in Kentucky in 1951 and was drafted by the Reds in the first round of the 1969 draft. He made his Major League debut the next season, and was a vital part of the Big Red Machine's starting rotation. In 1974, he led the Reds in ERA, strikeouts, complete games, and innings pitched. He followed that up with 15 wins, an ERA under 3.00, and a team-leading eight complete games in the Reds' World Championship season a year later. He posted 91 wins in just seven seasons with the Reds, but shoulder troubles ended his career after two more seasons with the Yankees. Gullet was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2002.
