On this day in 1952, Joe Dobson and Marv Grissom both threw complete game shutouts in a double header against the Detroit Tigers at Comiskey Park.
Joe was in the middle of a three year stretch with the ChiSox. He came to the South Side in a trade with the Boston Red Sox on December 10, 1950. Dobson was mostly a starter, who would occasionally throw out of the bullpen.
Burrhead, as Joe was nicknamed, went 26-21 for the Pale Hose over three seasons. He completed twenty games, had four shutouts and saved five games, all while keeping a 3.13 ERA.
