Guy Harris “Doc” White was not a superstar but was a player that teams would covert for his dependable and durable production.

White debuted in 1901 for the Philadelphia Phillies, where he played for two seasons, the second of which saw his 5.411 SO/9 lead the National League.  White jumped to the Chicago White Sox of the American League in 1903, and that is the team where he stayed until his Major League career ended in 1913.

From '03 to 08, White won at least 16 Games, including a league-leading 27 in 1907.  White progressively rose up the rankings in ERA, fourth in 1903 (2.13), third in 1904 (1.78), second in 1905 (1.76), and first in 1906 (1.52).  1906 was incredibly sweet for the Pitcher as he helped the White Sox win their first-ever World Series Title.  White also led the AL in WHIP in 1906 (0.903) and BB/9 twice (1907 & 1911).

It is worth mentioning that White was a respectable hitter, accumulating 278 Hits with a .217 Batting Average over his career.  Whited finished off with a record of 189-156 with 1,384 Strikeouts.
