Career highlights and awards

Rawlins Jackson "Rawly" Eastwick (born October 24, 1950 in Camden, New Jersey) is a former Major League Baseball relief pitcher who played from 1975 to 1981.

Career

Eastwick attended Haddonfield High School. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the third round of the 1969 amateur draft. In 1973, he made it to the Indianapolis Indians of the American Association and made his major league debut in September 1974 with the Reds. He started back at Indianapolis in 1975 but pitched well and was called up for good. In his rookie season, he tied for the National League lead in saves with 22.

Eastwick is best remembered for his 1975 World Series performance against the Boston Red Sox. He won games 2 and 3 and also earned a save in Game 5 as the Reds won the series in seven. In 1976, Eastwick had his best season, going 11-5 in relief with a 2.06 earned run average. He also led the league in saves and won the NL Fireman of the Year award.[1] The Reds won their second consecutive World Series title.

In 1977, Eastwick got into a contract dispute with the Reds' front office and was traded in June, to the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1978, he joined the New York Yankees after signing a five-year, $1.1 million deal.[1] The Yankees then traded him in June to the Philadelphia Phillies, where he spent the next two seasons. Eastwick posted a 4.90 ERA in 1979 and was released. He then pitched for the Kansas City Royals in 1980 and the Chicago Cubs in 1981 before retiring.
