Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Ted Blankenship was a mainstay in the Chicago White Sox rotation for much of the 1920s.


Blankenship was purchased by the Sox in the fall of 1921 from a Texas League club but missed the first half of the 1922 campaign after being injured in a car accident. He went on to win 17 games in 1925. However, he broke his finger during the following season and never again was able to attain his previous success.

Ted's brother, Homer Blankenship, was a teammate with the Sox in 1922 and 1923.

Blankenship died in 1945 at age 43.
