Description

One Win Wonders celebrates those pitchers who reached the Major Leagues and earned one, and only one, career victory. There have been approximately 650 members of this exclusive club in baseball since 1930. Some have appeared in as little as one inning, others played a year or more, but they all have one thing in common-one win. Rose Explores 50 members of the one win wonder club, and takes you on a journey through eight decades of baseball history while doing so. You will meet aging veterans trying to hang on to their dreams and hot-shot rookies with their whole careers ahead of them. Each has a story to tell, from his struggles in the Minors, that (sometimes long-awaited) call-up to the big leagues, to that first Major League victory. Rose takes a look at their teams and the events surrounding their time in the Show, and focuses on the details of each player's one and only win.
