Happy # 88 to Whitey Ford, known as “The Chairman of the Board” when he pitched for the mighty Yankees, 1950-67.
Ford pitched in 11 World Series for New York: 10-8 & 2.71 ERA.
Overall, he was 236-106 with an amazing career ERA of 2.75!
Ford was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1974. He was the ace of some of the greatest Yankee teams ever. His teammates included Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Roger Maris and others.
And a great gentleman as well!
