Over his career he made multiple All-Star Game appearances and matured into one of the best control pitchers of his era. He made 268 starts and 529 relief appearances in his career, logging 2,160 innings and compiling 109 wins and 38 saves.

Rick commented: “As you can imagine I have been on a lot of baseball fields through the course of my ongoing career, but when I step on the PRIMEPLAY™ turf it is like nothing I have seen before. The dense blade construction and non-moving infill allow the ball to stay down, it plays true, and it plays fast. And the underlayment pad ensures proper and consistent ball bounce.”
