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.
