No not 420. He played perhaps the greatest game at third in World Series history (1978 Game 3). He was one of the biggest personalities on the crazy 77/78 World Series champs. He had such notable quotes when in reference to Sparky Lyle ("He went from Cy Young to Sayanora") and in reference to the Yankees ("When I was a kid I wanted to be in the circus and play baseball. With the Yankees I got to do both.") Number 9, Graig Nettles, Number 9.
By the way, here is a little contest. Fish around my site for something that links me and the former Yankee third sacker. Winner gets a drink!
