Gary Peters

After four brief call-ups with the White Sox, Peters was AL Rookie of the Year in 1963 with a 19-8 mark and league-leading 2.33 ERA. He followed with a 20-8 season in 1964, but arm miseries struck. He rebounded with a second ERA title in 1966 (1.98) and 16 wins in 1967 and again in 1970 after he’d been dealt to the Red Sox.

A good-hitting pitcher (.222 with 19 homers), he was often used as a pinch hitter. On May 26, 1968, manager Eddie Stanky batted him sixth in the order, ahead of Luis Aparicio, Duane Josephson, and Tim Cullen.
