Early Wynn (January 6, 1920 - April 4, 1999) pitched an American League record 23 seasons with the Washington Senators (1939-1944, 1946-1948), the Cleveland Indians (1949-1957, 1963) and the Chicago White Sox (1958-1962). Wynn viewed each game as a war and the opposing hitter as his “mortal enemy.” Wynn was an extremely durable pitcher starting more than 25 games 17 times in his career as well as leading the American League three times in innings pitched. Early Wynn was an 8-time selection to the All-Star game and won the 1959 Cy Young Award. As a young, burly hard-throwing pitcher, Wynn developed a curveball, slider, changeup and knuckleball and exceptional command to harness that arsenal. Early Wynn retired with a 300-244 record with 2,334 strikeouts and a 3.54 ERA in 4,566 innings pitched. Early Wynn was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.
