In a ceremony prior to their home field loss against the Oakland A’s, the Chicago White Sox retired the number 56 of Mark Buehrle.
The lefthander made his debut in 2000 for Chicago where he would send the next twelve seasons of his career. With the Chi-Sox, Buehrle would go to four All Star Games and would win 161 Games and fan 1,396 batters. He would help Chicago win the 2005 World Series.
Buehrle becomes the 11th White Sox player in team history to have his number retired joining Nellie Fox (#2), Harold Baines (#3), Luke Appling (#4), Minnie Minoso (#9), Luis Aparicio (#11), Paul Konerko (#14), Ted Lyons (#16), Billy Pierce (#19), Thomas (#35) and Carlton Fisk (#72).
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Mark Buehrle for achieving this honor.
