I was told there'd be cake

Sparky Lyle, closer -New York Yankees He was famous for sneaking into the Yankees clubhouse whenever a player would have a cake delivered, pulling down his pants, and leaving an impression of his bare butt on the cake. He stopped this because he was worried that teammates would start leaving pins or needles in the cake. He was known to be a huge prankster and was also extremely superstitious. As I mentioned earlier, Lyle was the first closer to have entrance music. Song: "Pomp and Circumstance" composed by Sir Edward Elgar. From MLB At-Bat/Entrance/Warm-Up/Music. (Via Jane)
