[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

Much like the "Hitless Wonders" of 1906, the 1967 Chicago White Sox were carried on the arms of an excellent pitching staff. Joel Horlen anchored the rotation, winning 19 games and leading the American League with a 2.06 earned run average. Veteran Gary Peters won 16 games and struck out 215, while young hurler Tommy John notched 10 wins along with a 2.47 ERA. The stellar pitching made up for a subpar offense. No player hit 20 home runs, and no regular had a batting average higher than .241. Outfielder/first baseman Pete Ward led the hitters with 18 homers and 62 runs batted in. Under the leadership of fiery manager Eddie Stanky, the White Sox remained in the heat of the pennant race until losing both games of a doubleheader to the last place Kansas City Athletics in the final week of the season. They finished in fourth place in a tightly contested American League, just three games out of first place.
