The newest member of the Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame, former New York Yankees closing pitcher Rich "Goose" Gossage, will present the top-10 list on Wednesday night's Late Show with David Letterman.

Awesome moment.)Then on Thursday's Late Show, Howard Stern will make his 18th career appearance on Dave's talker.
