    This is unbelievable how many former Superstars we have lost in 2020.
    Whitey was a great pitcher but also played with a team that appeared in 11 World Series during his career. You would think that he would have had more than 236 wins with the great Yankee teams in that era however his lifetime winning percentage was phenomenal at .690 losing only 106 times. Seemed like every time the Sox played the Yankees it was always Billy Pierce facing Whitey in the opener of a 3 or 4 game series, always greatly anticipated but looking it up the two only faced each other 15 times with Pierce going 7-7 and Whitey with a 5-7 record against Billy.
    Whatever happened to the great pitching matches we had back in the day?
