Chris Short

Known as Style because of his meager wardrobe as a rookie, 6’4″ Chris Short was slow to develop but emerged in the mid-1960s as a mainstay of the Phillies’ pitching staff. He won 17 or more games four times between 1964 and 1968; in 1966 he became the first Phillies southpaw to win 20 since Eppa Rixey won 22 in 1916. Facing the Mets on October 2, 1965, he tied what was then the post-1901 NL record for most strikeouts in a game, fanning 18 in 15 innings; the game was called after 18 frames without a run being scored. Back trouble curtailed Short’s career.
