On This Day In Baseball History: April 14, 1917



White Sox righty Eddie Cicotte no hits the St. Louis Browns 11-0. Cicotte, or Knuckles to teammates, is better known as one of the eight players of the infamous “Black Sox” to be permanently banned from professional baseball for allegedly throwing the 1919 World Series. He would finish the 1917 season leading the league with 28 wins, a 1.53 ERA, and 346 2/3 innings pitched. Three and a half years later the pitchers career would be over.
