Early Wynn Jr. Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Early Wynn Jr. (January 6, 1920 – April 4, 1999), nicknamed "Gus", was a right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB). During a 25-year baseball career, he pitched for the Washington Senators, Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox. Armed with a powerful fastball and a hard-nosed attitude, he was identified as one of the most intimidating pitchers in the game.Wynn was born in Alabama and signed with the Senators at the age of 17, deciding to pursue baseball instead of finishing high school. Wynn spent a couple of seasons in the minor leagues, had a brief MLB stint in 1939, returned to the majors in 1941 and pitched his first full MLB season in 1942. He missed the 1945 season and a portion of the next season while serving in the military during World War II.Along with Bob Feller, Bob Lemon and Mike Garcia, Wynn was a member of one of baseball's best pitching rotations while with the Indians in the mid-1950s. He won the 1959 Cy Young Award, beginning to rely on the knuckleball as the velocity of his pitches declined. Wynn retired in 1963. He finished with exactly 300 career wins; he had spent several months in pursuit of his 300th win.Wynn served as a coach and broadcaster in the major leagues after his retirement as a player. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. He was included on the 1999 The Sporting News list of the 100 greatest players in baseball history. He died that year in an assisted living facility following a stroke.

#Quote
1A pitcher is only as good as his legs.
2That space between the white lines - that's my office. That's where I conduct my business.
3A pitcher has to look at the hitter as his mortal enemy.
4I don't like losing a ball game any more than a salesman likes losing a sale.
5A pitcher will never be a big winner until he hates hitters.
6Asked if he would have brushed back his grandmother: "Only if she dug in."
7I've got a right to knock down anybody holding a bat.
8You can't get enjoyment out of hate. I wish I could live by this 100 percent, but every fourth or fifth day during the summer, I go into a Jekyll and Hyde act. Every time a player gets a hit or home run off me, I get strange notions and ideas of things I would like to do to him. Then after the game I feel ashamed and think to myself, 'This guy is a nice fellow and I wonder what's happening to you, Early?' So I'll call him up and invite him to be my guest at dinner and spend the evening talking shop.
9When asked if he would throw at his mother: "It would depend how well she was hitting."
10When asked if he would knock down his mother on Mother's Day: "I would if she were crowding the plate."
