Earl Caldwell

Caldwell shut out the Braves in his major league debut with the 1928 Phillies but did not win another ML game until called up by the Browns seven years later. His 7-16 (6.00) mark in 1936 resulted in banishment to the minors in 1937, where he pitched until his contract was purchased by the wartime 1945 White Sox. He threw fairly well as a 40-year-old that season, but, assigned to the bullpen in 1946, he became a sensation, winning an AL-high 13 in relief with eight saves.
