May 17

1969 Topps #173 Bob Christian, Gerry Nyman (Rookie Stars)

On this day in 1969, Jerry Nyman pitched a one-hitter against the Washington Senators, for one of the few highlights of a dreadful season. Nyman allowed a one out single in the second inning to Washington left fielder Brant Alyea.

Jerry would spend 1968 and 1969 with the White Sox, compiling a 6-5 record over that time. Before the 1970 season, Nyman was traded to the San Diego Padres for Tommie Sisk. Jerry would appear in two games with the Padres, losing both games. Sisk fared slightly better. He appeared in seventeen games for the White Sox in 1970, sporting a 1-1 record. Both Nyman and Sisk would have their last MLB seasons in 1970.
