Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Calvin Klippstein (October 17, 1927 - October 10, 2003) was an American pitcher in Major League Baseball (mostly as a reliever) for a number of teams throughout his career. The most prominent portion of his career was spent early on with the Chicago Cubs (1950-1954). In 18 years, he finished with an 101-118 record and a 4.24 ERA in 711 games (161 starts). He had 1158 strikeouts in 1,967-2/3 innings pitched. Klippstein was often known for his control problems. He won a World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1959, but played a much more significant role in the Minnesota Twins pennant run in 1965.show more
