Hall of Fame Membership
As the keepers of the Game’s history, the Hall of Fame helps you relive your memories and celebrate baseball history.
In fact, Ford harnessed those “nerves of steel” to toss 33 consecutive scoreless innings in World Series play, another signature “Chairman” mark. Ford also had seven complete games in the Classic and was part of six Yankees championship teams. Overall in World Series play, Ford was 10-8 with a 2.71 ERA. No pitcher has ever won more games in the World Series.
Ford was elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in 1974.
