Originally signed by the New York Yankees in the fifth round of the 1973 Major League Baseball Draft, Lamarr Hoyt was traded to the Chicago White Sox in a 1977 season-opening deal that sent the Yankees shortstop Bucky Dent. A relief pitcher when he made the White Sox to stay in 1980, Hoyt was switched to the starting rotation in 1982 and tied a club record by winning his first nine decisions. Hoyt ended up leading the American League with nineteen wins and showed devastating control on the mound. Lamarr Hoyt has hand signed this Chicago White Sox 8x10 Photo.
