Righetti pitched for 16 seasons from 1979 to 1995 with the Yankees, Giants, and three other teams. He earned American League Rookie of the Year honors in 1981, when he won three postseason games en route to the Yankees’ World Series championship. On July 4, 1983, he pitched a no-hitter at Yankee Stadium against the Boston Red Sox. He converted to a reliever the following season and saved 252 career games. He later spent 18 years as a pitching coach with the Giants under manager Bruce Bochy, capturing three more World Series rings from 2010 to 2014.
