Cubs Calendar 10/24/12 - Sacrifice

I'm tossing out Howry because I can't recall most of the bullpen outside of Kerry Wood and Marmol at this point.
So off the top of my head we had:
The guy who wore the stirrups (my new guess is this guy) - remembered - Aaron Heilmann
Which means there is at least 1 guy we are forgetting.

Unless there were very few relievers with sacrifice hits, and Sean Gallagher's 3 led the league.
I just cheated a bit and looked at the B-R page for the '08 Cubs...goodness were there a few names I completly missed. And I agree that it appears that the caledar is wrong.

That's right. Dempster had 19, which led the league (even though the Cubs were slightly below the league average for SH). But Dempster only started that year -- he didn't have a single relief appearance.
It also depends on when during the season you wanna talk about, if I recall we also had Neal Cotts and Chad Gaudin on the opening day roster but it all depends on who had the most atbats during that season coming out of the pen, and for as decent as the pitching staff was that season for having the most S-H that season and being from the Cubs its really hard to believe it was a RP
Way to go, Phil. YOUR calendar is wrong AGAIN.

Didn't he pitch an inning or relief in a blowout in '08? I thought you were just thinking outside the box.
Thanks everyone for not mentioning that I didn't name a reliever. I apparently can't read. Would definitely not have guessed Dempster, though.
