Early Wynn can best be described as a throwback workhorse to an earlier century. He is one of the few four decade players, a five time twenty or more wins pitcher, a two time strikeout leader, an ERA champion, a Cy Young Award winner, and a pitcher who won nearly every game by sheer determination and some serious intimidation!
On July 13, 1963, Early Wynn won game number three hundred. Did you know that he also broke Bob Feller's record for most base on balls in a career during this same game?
