Hall Of Famer
Signed by John McGraw after pitching batting practice for the Giants at age 15, Waite Hoyt went on to become the mainstay of six Yankees pennant winners in the 1920s. Schoolboy pitched three games in the 1921 World Series against the Giants and allowed only two runs -- both unearned -- over 27 innings, earning two of his six career World Series victories. The highly intelligent and articulate right-hander ended his 21-year career in 1938 and broadcast games in New York and Cincinnati for the next 28 seasons.
Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1969
