Bob Shaw

Monday, September 27, 2010


We all are very saddened at the loss of former White Sox pitcher Bob Shaw, star of the 1959 pennant-winning Go-Go Sox, who passed away last Thursday after losing his fight with liver cancer.

Shaw, 77, went 38-25 with a 3.53 ERA in 126 games (71 starts) with the White Sox from 1958-61.  The right-hander went 18-6 with a 2.69 ERA in 1959 as the Sox claimed the AL title.

He won Game 5 of the World Series, beating Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers, 1-0, in Los Angeles.
