One of the greats of the game with a unique pitching style and pinpoint accuracy. "El Presidente" was & still is one of my favorite Major League Baseball pitchers of all time. He had a side winding - high kick stand delivery with a lot of personality & charisma to match. Not to mention, he is The first Nicaraguan-born major leaguer.
Good to see that he is still alive and well. He is the current bullpen coach with the Houston Astros.
Who can forget him & all his great accomplishments in the game. Dennis made a mark on the many teams he was with as you can see whom he played for in a legendary pitching career.
