A native of Cincinatti, Ohio, Russell enjoyed a 14-year professional career that included time with the Reds, Athletics, Red Sox, Indians, and, most famously, the Texas Rangers. He was selected to the MLB All-Star Game in 1988 and 1989, when he led the American League with 38 saves, and he is a member of the Texas Rangers 2015 Hall of Fame Class.

Welcome back, Jeff!
