Joining the Yankees in the middle of the 1950 season, "Whitey" won nine straight games. A home run by Philadelphia's
Sam Chapman gave him his only loss in his 9 win 1 loss rookie season stats.  In the 1950 World Series against Philidelpia,
he pitched 8-2/3 innings without allowing an earned run, struck out 7 and walked only 1 batter to win the fourth game of the
Yankee series sweep. He spent 1951 and 1952 in the military service and was not included in the 1952 Topps Baseball Card Set.
