LaMarr Hoyt Biography
LaMarr Hoyt is one of the most popular and richest Baseball Pitcher who was born on January 1, 1955 in United States. Dewey LaMarr Hoyt, Jr. (born January 1, 1955, in Columbia, South Carolina) is a former Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher who won the 1983 American League Cy Young Award.
The White Sox faltered in 1984, as Hoyt’s record fell to 13-18 with a 4.47 ERA. He went from winning the most games in the American League in 1983 to losing the most games the following year. Hoping for a rebound from the former Cy Young Award winner, the San Diego Padres traded Ozzie Guillén, Tim Lollar, Bill Long and Luis Salazar to the White Sox for Hoyt, Kevin Kristan and Todd Simmons during the 1984-1985 off-season. Guillen would win the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1985.
A poor hitter, even by pitchers’ standards, Hoyt had just ten hits in 110 career at-bats. The only extra-base hit of his career was an RBI double on July 13, 1986, against Tim Conroy of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Barely a month after the season ended Hoyt was arrested again for drug possession, this time on the U.S.- Mexico border. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail on December 16, 1986, and suspended by then-Commissioner Peter Ueberroth on February 25, 1987. An arbitrator reduced his suspension to sixty days in mid-June and ordered the Padres to reinstate him, but the team gave him his unconditional release the following day.
Hoyt was even better in 1983, winning the American League Cy Young Award. His 24-10 won-lost record, 3.66 earned run average and even better control than the previous season, (walking 31 batters in 260.2 innings, and leading the league in fewest walks per nine innings for the first of three straight seasons), helped the White Sox capture the American League West title.

Originally signed by the New York Yankees in the fifth round of the 1973 Major League Baseball draft, Hoyt was traded with fellow pitching prospect Bob Polinsky, outfielder Oscar Gamble and $200,000 to the Chicago White Sox in a 1977 season-opening deal that sent the Yankees shortstop Bucky Dent. A relief pitcher when he made the White Sox to stay in 1980, Hoyt was switched to the starting rotation in 1982 and tied a club record by winning his first nine decisions. The record was first set by Lefty Williams in 1917 and equaled by Orval Grove in 1943. Hoyt ended up leading the American League with 19 wins and showed devastating control on the mound; he walked a mere 48 batters in 239.2 innings.
He pitched a complete game victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the first game of the 1983 American League Championship Series, giving up only one run on five hits with no walks. This was the only game the ChiSox won in the series.
