Early WYNN (HOF)


A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: Has more pitches than anyone else in the game: Early throws a fastball, curve, changeup, and a knuckler, but can toss each of them at fast, medium, and slow speeds. Learned the curveball from teammate Mel Harder and added it to his repertoire to frustrate batters. Wynn is one of the quickest workers on the hill, a no-nonsense guy on game days. “That space between the white lines, that's my office, that's where I conduct my business,” says Early. Was 17 years old when he showed up for a tryout with the Senators, and Early was wearing his overalls when he showed the scouts what he could do.
