NY Yankees Whitey Ford Owns Chicago Again, 11 to 2

April 25, 1967 Day Game @ Yankee Stadium

New York Yankees Whitey Ford captures his final career win going the distance in a 11 to 2 victory.
Ford had a complete game shutout against the White Sox earlier this month, won his 2nd game (and last victory of his career as he eventually retires in May 1967). Chicago's Tommy John surrendered 10 hiits and 7 earned runs and was lifted during the Yankees 6-run 5th inning. Charlie Smith led the Yanks with 4 hits and Dick Howser had 3. Chisox Dick Kenworthy was 1 for 4 with an rbi and run scored.
The Sox are now at 6 wins and 6 losses.

  1. Your photo of Dick Kenworthy brings his memory to me. He was a prospect for several years. He did have some power. Great photos.
