Oh, what could have been. Atlee Hammaker had a phenomenal season in 1983 at the age of 25. He led the NL in ERA, ERA+, FIP, and WHIP. He was just as good in limited time in 1984. Unfortunately, the rest of his career was wrecked by injuries, and he never came close to reaching those heights again.
Hammaker pitched 7.2 innings over the 1994 and 1995 seasons for the Sox. Those were the last innings of his Major League career.
ER21 on SCN recently held a private signing with Hammaker. He doesn’t have any Major League cards in a White Sox uniform, so I sent in a minor league team set card.
