The first two seasons of Guy Harris "Doc" White's Major League career were with the Philadelphia Phillies of the National League.  He was an excellent Pitcher there, but he elected to take his talents to the Chicago White Sox in 1903 and the American League, where he would play for eleven years.

In modern terms, White was a junk ball pitcher, but an incredibly gifted one.  In his first four seasons in Chicago, he would finish in the top four in ERA, winning the ERA and WHIP Title in 1906.  That year, he was a huge part of Chicago's World Series Championship, where he went 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA.

White remained an upper-echelon pitcher in 1907, leading the AL in Wins (27), BB/9 (1.2), and SO/BB (3.71).  He would begin to decline afterward, and years later, his "junk" was gone, and White retired after 1913.

White would finish his White Sox career with a World Series Title, 159 Wins, and 1,067 Strikeouts.
