Tekulve and Mike Marshall are the only pitchers in baseball history to appear in 90 or more games more than once. Tekulve also threw the baseball in a unique manner, pitching with an unusual submarine delivery. His best season came in 1979 when he appeared in 94 games, posting a 10-8 won-loss record and 31 saves. He also saved three games in the World Series that year as the Pirates defeated the Baltimore Orioles. He later led the NL in games pitched with 90 in 1987 while pitching for the Phillies at the age of 40. Tekulve owns the career record for most appearances without making a single start. In 1986 he broke Roy Face's NL record of 846 career games pitched; he held the record until John Franco passed him in 2004.

Tekulve has ressurrection on his mind - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (1946 words)
Kent Tekulve is as distinctive now as he was 23 years ago, when his submarine pitching style captured the imagination of the city and helped the Pirates to a World Series championship.
Tekulve, who figured he'd be gone by the end of the season, had a surprisingly good year as a starter, forcing the Pirates to take another look at him the next season.
Tekulve is not teaching the sidearm motion to his players, the style that distinguished him from other pitchers in the major leagues at that time.
