Oscar Zamora

Zamora was the Cubs’ main right-handed reliever in 1974-75, saving ten each season despite fighting a back injury. He threw strikes, but, as one writer put it, “When the pitch is so fat, that the ball hits the bat, that’s Zamora.” Bruce Sutter’s 1976 arrival made the Cuban reliever expendable. Zamora pitched a seven-inning perfect game for Denver (American Association) on September 2, 1972.
