1994 Leaf #406 - Scott Sanderson
On this day in 1994, the Chicago White Sox signed Scott Sanderson through free agency.
Growing up near Chicago, Scott had the luxury, as a player, to play on both sides of town. First he played with the Cubs from 1984 until 1989 and he played for the White Sox in 1994. Basically, Sanderson bookended his time with the Cubs with postseason appearances. He was on his way to a third postseason appearance with a Chicago team in 1994, this time for the South Side, when the strike occurred and shut down the season for good.
Scott compiled an 8-4 record in 1994, making the majority of his appearances as starts. He had a nice 3 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio, but gave up twenty long balls. Sanderson was granted free agency during the long offseason and signed with the California Angels for the last two years of his career.
