Early Wynn Gets His 300th Victory
At the time of his retirement, Wynn had pitched longer than anyone in baseball history. He finished his career with an ERA of 3.54, striking out 2,334 batters in 4,564 innings, amassing a record of 300-244.
“I was ready to give up the chase but Lefty Grove, who won 300 himself, urged me to keep trying,” Wynn told the Chicago Sun Times. “That figure 300 seems to be something special and now that I have it, it really is.”
