Thanks, Andrew! One of these days I'm going to have to get around to hooking this thing up & downloading the software for it.
Wood was the last of the real workhorses in baseball. As a reliever in the '60's, he set the record for games pitched, that was ultimately broken by Wayne Granger and Mike Marshall. As a starter, he was one of the most dominant pitchers in the game from 1971-1974. The knuckleballer once won two games in one day, and also was the last to start both games of a doubleheader. Wood's days as a dominant starter in the AL came to a close when a Ron LeFlore line drive shattered his kneecap in a game early in the '76 campaign. Wood returned and pitched for a couple of more seasons but was never the same.
