From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michael Richard Waits (born May 15, 1952 in Atlanta, Georgia) was a left-handed pitcher in major league baseball for the Texas Rangers(1973), Cleveland Indians(1975-83), and Milwaukee Brewers(1983-85). Waits, a starter in his prime, beat the New York Yankees in the final regular season game of 1978, forcing a one-game playoff between the Yankees and Boston Red Sox for the American League East division title. News of that win was announced on Fenway Park's video screen with the words "THANK YOU RICK WAITS -- GAME TOMORROW."
