Today in White Sox History: September 8

Finally: Wynn wouldn’t get it with the White Sox, but his 300th arrived in 1963. (Post Cereal)


Sept. 8, 1962 — White Sox pitcher and future Hall-of-Famer Early Wynn won his 299th career game, beating the Washington Senators with a complete game, 7-3. Wynn would get a spring training invite from the White Sox in 1963, but was cut. Fortunately Cleveland, the team Wynn pitched for earlier in his career, picked him up; he got his coveted 300th win on July 13, 1963, when he beat the Kansas City A’s.

  1. Never got to see Early play but I do remember him as a color guy with Joe McConnell (I think) doing play by play. From reading the article, he was a much better ball player than he was a broadcaster.

    1. Early did work with Joe who gave him the opportunity to do play by play for an inning or so. Early was pretty poor at it to say the least.
