Currently, Smith and Reardon sit fourth and seventh respectively on the all-time saves list, and each one recorded at least one of those saves in pinstripes.

Smith started the fun in 1993, coming over from the Cardinals that August and recording three saves in eight appearances with the Yankees down the stretch. They were career saves No. 399, 400, and 401 of 478 for Smith, who would be the all-time leader when he retired after the 1997 season.

The following year it was Reardon’s turn, as he finished a 16-year career in 1994 with the Yankees. The righty made 11 appearances in April and May, going 1-0 with an 8.38 ERA and two saves before his release on May 6 ended his MLB tenure.
