 Biographical Information
Wilcy Moore is now considered to have won the American League ERA title, with a 2.28 figure as a rookie in 1927. However, under the rules of the time, he was not considered eligible for the title in spite of his 213 innings pitched, as he had only compiled 6 complete games - in 12 starts - fewer than the minimum 10 required at the time. His teammate Waite Hoyt, who posted a 2.64 ERA for the 1927 Yankees, is therefore credited with the title in many reference sources. He was also the Yankees' pitching hero in that year's World Series, saving a 5-4 win in Game 1, and pitching a complete game victory in Game 4 to put the finishing touch on a four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
